    Background

    背景

    Following high-level conferences and forums during the EU-China Blue Year 2017, the EU and China signed a Blue Partnership for the Ocean in 16 June 2018, which marked the beginning of a new phase of strategic EU-China ocean relations. This Partnership sets out a comprehensive and holistic framework for our cooperation in the domain of the oceans. The shared objective of the Partnership is to ensure effective ocean governance for the conservation and sustainable use of the oceans and their resources. Key aims include sustainable fisheries, a thriving maritime economy and a healthy oceans and their resources. Two EU-China workshops on “Marine data science” in 2017 and subsequent bilateral visits defined major cooperation areas with common interests and challenges in marine data science, which formed the basis for the call of this tender3[1].

    EU and China both have common and different best practices in ocean governance and in sharing and managing data and data products. The overall aim of the EU EMOD-PACE project is to promote international ocean governance with China and support the implementation of global commitments by making ocean marine data and data products more easily accessible and by providing better data and data products.

    The overall aim can be broken down into the following more concrete objectives which will be addressed by the different project tasks described as follows:

    • Establish a solid and effective working relationship between EMODnet and Chinese counterparts, in particular the National Marine Data and Information Service (NMDIS) (All Work Packages);
    • Support processes related to collaboration with China with a view to improve discovery of and access to marine data and data products by establishing interoperability of data and information systems (Work Packages 1 and 2);
    • Support ocean-related policy objectives and policy dialogues as well as to enhance cooperation in key areas of ocean governance (All Work Packages);
    • Facilitate political convergence towards a collective approach to tackling global ocean challenges such as climate change, marine litter, and environmental protection and biodiversity, in particular in the context of the Convention for Biological Diversity (CBD) (Work Packages 2, 3, 4 and 5);
    • Support the use of internationally agreed standards for marine data, both by the public and private sectors (All Work Packages, in particular Work Packages 1 and 2).

     

    2017年“中欧蓝色年”的成功举办为欧盟和中国在海洋领域建立紧密合作关系奠定了基础,期间举行的高层会议和论坛深化了欧-中海洋合作。双方于2018616日签署《中华人民共和国和欧洲联盟关于为促进海洋治理、渔业可持续发展和海洋经济繁荣在海洋领域建立蓝色伙伴关系的宣言》,标志着欧中海洋战略关系新阶段的开始。该伙伴关系为中欧在海洋领域的合作制定了一个整体全面的框架,其共同目标是确保有效的海洋治理和海洋资源可持续发展利用。主要目标包括可持续渔业,繁荣的海洋经济以及健康的海洋及其资源。在2017年,中欧两次"海洋数据科学"研讨会和随后的双边访问确定了在海洋数据科学领域具有共同利益和挑战的主要合作领域,为本次项目招标奠定了坚实的基础。

    在海洋治理以及分享和管理数据和数据产品方面,欧盟和中国分别有共同和不同的最佳做法和惯例。欧盟EMOD-PACE项目的总体目标是与中国一起促进国际海洋治理,支持履行全球承诺,使海洋数据和数据产品更易于获取,并提供更好的数据和数据产品。

    总体目标可细分为以下更具体的目标,将由以下描述的不同项目任务解决:

    • 在欧洲海洋观测和数据网络(EMODnet)与中国对应部门,特别是中国国家海洋信息中心(NMDIS)之间建立牢固和有效的工作关系(所有子课题1-5);
    • 支持与中国合作相关的进程,旨在通过建立数据和信息系统的互操作性来改进海洋数据和数据产品的发现和访问(子课题12);
    • 支持与海洋有关的政策目标和政策对话,并加强在海洋治理关键领域的合作(所有子课题1-5);
    • 促进政策趋同,尤其是在《生物多样性公约》的框架内采取集体行动应对全球海洋问题比如气候变化、海洋垃圾、环境保护和生物多样性等全球海洋挑战(子课题2-5);
    • 支持公共和私营部门使用国际商定的海洋数据标准(所有子课题,特别是子课题12)。

     

     

    Purpose and overall objectives of the inception meeting

    启动会议的目的和总体目标

    The overall objective is to set the stage to exchange information, develop the EU-China cooperation and initiate collaboration on general and project specific tasks.

    This inception meeting will be the first one after the kick-off the project and is therefore of high importance. It is clear that engagement and interaction with Chinese counterparts from NMDIS and other Asian marine data centres will be critically underpinning the development of the Project detailed work plans and achieve the objectives of the contract. The inception phase will therefore be of great importance to kick-start the project with major effort to develop the first detailed workplans and adjust the rolling workplans based on the knowledge gained and challenges encountered as the project moves forward.

    The main objective of the meeting will focus on marine data and information gathering and sharing, to tackle the technical and operational challenges to achieve the necessary synergies and interrelationships with the right counterparts in China at NMDIS as well as between the different work packages. More specifically, to establish the dialogue to obtain the information/data/resources needed to execute the WP1-WP5 tasks.

    The specific goals are as follows:

    • Presentation of existing status in China and Europe
    • Overview of marine data services available from EMODnet and NMIDS
    • Analyses of commonalities and differences
    • Identification and establish contact between specific knowledge experts and operational managers from EMODnet and NMIDS covering different services
    • Adoption of common views about the context
    • Formulation of common approaches for achieving interoperability (WP1-WP2)
    • Understanding of available data, information and how/where to implement models/tools (WP3-WP5)
    • Formulation, clarification and adaptation of detailed work plans for each WP
    • Reports on progress and possible impacts
    • Specifications of next steps, next meetings

    Structure of the meeting:

    Based upon the introductory (plenary) presentations which set the stage, participants could start with discussions in parallel sessions on specific topics of the project to ask further questions and clarify issues that may exist. This may be organized along different strands, e.g.:

    • Mutual knowledge gathering (presentations) to identify its NMDIS counterparts for data interoperability and together with them will draft the specific workshop agendas, planning a series of mutual presentations.
    • Analysing commonalities and differences, and brainstorming about options and following steps for overcoming any differences (bilateral discussions), e.g. to identify the European basin and Asian basin, observation data, ocean models and reanalysis to be used in the model and reanalysis validation and inter-comparison via bilateral discussions.

     

    本次启动会议的总体目标是搭建交流信息的平台、发展欧中合作和开展整体和项目具体任务的合作。

    作为项目启动后的第一次会议,本次会议具有重大意义。与中国合作方国家海洋信息中心和其他亚洲海洋数据中心的沟通互动将有力支持项目详细工作计划的制定和实现合同的目标。因此在启动阶段制定第一个详细的工作计划并依据项目实施过程中获得的经验知识和面临的挑战调整工作计划,对于项目运行有至关重要的促进作用。

    会议将主要聚焦于海洋数据和信息的收集和共享,以应对技术和业务方面的挑战,从而实现和中国国家海洋信息中心之间的协同增效并且建立项目内各个子课题之间的相互关系。更具体地说,本次会议将致力于建立欧中对话渠道以获取执行子课题1-5的相关任务所需的信息、数据和资源。
