Abstract: The English Channel hosts a high density of human activities, which result in strong pressures and impacts on its marine ecosystem. The European Union's INTERREG programme funds projects to promote sustainable development through ecosystem-based management and the development of socio-economic services in the Channel region. An analysis of the themes studied during INTERREG IVA projects to date reveals both gaps that should be addressed in the future, as well as good practices that should be maintained and promoted. This analysis was used to provide advice and recommendations on knowledge gaps which may form the foundation of future projects for European programmes such as those in the next INTERREG project call (2015–2020).
