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.

Usefulness of INSPIRE standards for analysing human activity at sea

INSPIRE Directive 2007/2/EC set up a framework that helps scientists and engineers in public or private bodies find, access and use geospatial data. The European Marine Observation and Data Network (EMODnet) partners are compliant with INSPIRE principles but have found that on its own, it is not enough to guarantee seamless coverage across national borders and that improvements in the data model would improve its fitness for purpose.
