EMODnet is a network of organisations working together to observe the sea, to make the marine data collected freely available and interoperable, to create seamless data layers across sea-basins and to distribute the data and data products through the Internet. The primary aim of EMODnet is to unlock existing but fragmented and hidden marine data and make them accessible for a wide range of users including private bodies, public authorities and researchers.
Seascape Belgium staff prepare for first day of the EOOS Conference (21-23/11/2018, Brussels). This event brings together and connect diverse ocean observing stakeholder communities, from science, public authorities, industries including fisheries, energy, transport, and wider society.
The Conference is all about connecting communities, building on progress made at the EOOS Forum, taking place on 8 March 2018, to present an EOOS strategy and implementation plan, together with a strong call to action. It’s an opportunity to showcase your work, network with stakeholders across Europe and help shape the future European Ocean Observing System (EOOS)!
Seascape Belgium staff providing the Secretariat for the European Marine Observation and Data Network (EMODnet) were leading the organisation of the EOOS Conference with support from the Secretariats of the European Marine Board and EuroGOOS, and with financial support from the European Commission Directorate-General for Maritime Affairs or Fisheries.
