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.

EMODnet Stakeholder Conference: Stress tests on marine data - Towards a European Ocean Observing System

How fit for purpose is Europe's marine data infrastructure? How accessible and interoperable are the data? Where are the gaps in monitoring? A series of stress tests in Europe's seabasins have been underway for the past three years. During this Conference the results of these stress-tests will be presented and discussed to find the way forward.

Progress in data ingestion - ensuring that marine data are not lost

A gateway will shortly be opened that allows researchers who have finished projects or public authorities who have received data from impact assessments or indeed any other holders of marine data to deliver them for safekeeping and subsequent dissemination through EMODnet for re-use by others.
