Maritime forum

Europe's 2020 strategy recognises that knowledge drives innovation, which in turn brings growth that is both sustainable and smart. For the maritime economy much of this knowledge depends on observations of the rhythms and cycles of the sea. However, the data collected through these observations can only generate knowledge and innovation if Europe's engineers and scientists are able to find, access, assemble and apply them efficiently and rapidly. At present this is not the case. The Commission's "Marine Knowledge 2020" initiative aims to unlock and assemble marine data from different sources and facilitate their use.

Blue Growth Data Challenge Part 1: Engaging Industry - EMD2017 Workshop

Current attempts to engage industry as users or providers of marine data is insufficient to fully unlock the wealth of European marine observations and data for blue growth. This workshop will discuss the challenges and benefits of public-private collaboration towards data acquisition and sharing. Drawing from initiatives such as WOC’s Smart Ocean Smart Industries program, MAREANO project, H2020 Columbus and the EMODnet Data Intestion Facility the workshop will identify best practices to promote industry-public collaborations and facilitate the uptake of data from private sector. It will set the stage for the follow-on workshop Blue Growth Data Challenge Part 2: Offshore Energy Case Studies.

Wanted - users of marine data

The European Commission is looking to set up an expert group to guide the development of the European Marine Observation and Data Network. Representatives of industrial sectors - oil and gas, renewable energy, shipping, aquaculture etc. - as well as companies providing value added products that support them are particularly requested but also public authorities responsible for such matters as spatial planning or coastal protection or civil society

Are Europe's marine data fit for purpose? - outcome of stress tests

Stress tests show that EMODnet and Copernicus have made significant improvements in access and usability of EU's marine data but that much remains to be done. Many data are still hidden, unavailable or mutually incompatible. Fisheries impact, river discharges and coastal erosion are particularly troublesome. Efforts are underway to tackle these parameters
