Shared multi-use of ocean space is associated with overcoming several complex technical, regulatory, financial, environmental and socio-economic problems. In achieving this goal, several stakeholders of relevance need to participate in the design and implementation of multi-use platforms. This chapter (This work has received funding from the European Union’s 7th Framework Program under grant agreement N° 288710 and N° 288192) reviews and discusses the participatory approaches employed in the MERMAID and TROPOS projects. The discussion draws on the methods employed in each case, the objectives and obstacles encountered resulting in useful conclusions for participatory design.
