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
EMODnet PHASE II - Final progress report 09/2016-09/2017

The European Marine Observation and Data Network (EMODnet), funded by the european Maritime & Fisheries Fund (EMFF) has reached the end of development Phase II (2013-2017). There is now a central portal providing access to data portals covering bathymetry, geology, physics, chemistry, biology, habitats and human activities in European seas.

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.

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.
