Marine Strategic Planning Challenge 2050

MSP Challenge 2050 is a multi-dimensional, multi-player computer supported serious game for and about marine spatial planning. The game is developed and owned by the Netherlands ministry of Infrastructure and Environment and NHTV Breda University of Applied Sciences, Academy for Digital Entertainment. The MSP software is being redesigned throughout 2016-2017, and as part of this redesign, EII is implementing a linkage to Ecopath with Ecosim to compute ecological impacts of marine planning decisions during game play.

Three MSP games will be released in 2017, featuring EwE models for the North Sea, the Baltic, and the Celtic Sea. These models are adjusted for MSP game play by Ecopath Research and Development Consortium partners. The MSP software and underlying EwE engine are fully data-driven, which creates the possibility to create MSP games for any region in the world. We are very excited about these new capabilities!
