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

Current attempts to engage industry as users or providers of marine data are 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.
