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

Event date:
18/05/2017 - 17:15
Table of Contents
    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.

    Offshore Energy Case Studies

    Involving industry in marine data initiatives


    Workshop 17 – European Maritime Day (18-19 May, Poole, UK) 
    When: Thursday 18 May 2017 from 17:00 – 18:30
    Venue: Lighthouse Arts & Conference Centre in Poole
    Organiser: Workshop organised by The University of Edinburgh through the projects ATLAS and INSITE

    At the heart of marine environmental management is a sound scientific understanding built upon robust data sources. However, both emerging and long-established Blue Growth sectors face challenges in accessing environmental data that unifies commercial, academic and government information. Issues surrounding data to support blue growth are now particularly pertinent for the North Sea as the basin is in a period of transition as the oil and gas industry enters its decommissioning phase. This workshop will address key issues in the provision, analysis, application and long-term storage of marine environmental data relevant to oil and gas decommissioning and the growth of marine renewables. Drawing from the experiences of researchers in the INSITE and H2020 ATLAS projects together with industry expertise, participants will discuss the challenges and opportunities of providing holistic open-access environmental data to all stakeholders in the marine environment. This workshop follows on from the Blue Growth Data Challenge Part 1: Engaging Industry.

    Chair: J. Murray Roberts (University of Edinburgh, Project Coordinator, ATLAS)
