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.

Title
Shipping density maps from AIS signals

With growing demands for sea-space, the planning of new activities requires knowledge of what is already happening. EMODnet already provides many data on human activities but, so far, shipping has not been included. The increasing use and availability of information from ships' AIS anti-collision systems offers a route to provide this information. The aim of this meeting is to see how this can be done.

Copernicus-EMODnet integration seminar

Both initiatives aim to provide data on the marine environment free of charge and free of restrictions of use. The aim of the meeting is to learn lessons from each that can apply to both and to develop ever-closer union.

EMODnet Annual Report 2016

2016 was a successful year for EMODnet. We have already achieved what we set out to do by 2020; deliver a complete multi-resolution seabed map of European seas. EMODnet is now a reference source of data for those working in the coastal and offshore blue economy. It is already improving the forecasting of storm surges and helping national and regional authorities develop spatial plans and report the state of their marine environment.

8th EMODnet Steering Committee Meeting - Agenda

The EMODnet Steering Committee meets twice a year to revise progress and set the priorities for future developments. The 8th Steering Committee Meeting will follow on from a Sea-basin Checkpoints Workshop focusing on the Checkpoint methodology. The Sea-basin Checkpoints serve to stress test the adequacy of the current observational capacity at a regional/sea-basin level and their results contribute to the improvement of EMODnet.

EMODnet Checkpoint Methods Workshop

This Workshops will focus on streamlining the EMODnet Sea-basin checkpoint methodology. The Sea-basin Checkpoints perform stress test of the adequacy of the current observational capacity at a regional/sea-basin level and their results contribute to the improvement of EMODnet. The EMODnet Stakeholder Conference (14-15 February 2017, Brussels) highlighted the different approaches and methods applied by the sea-basin checkpoints stressing the need to assess best practices and a common way forward. The Sea-basin Checkpoints Workshop will take place back to back with the 8th EMODnet Steering Committee Meeting.
