European Marine Observation and Data Network (EMODnet)

EMODnet is a network of European organisations working together to observe the oceans, 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 provides the Secretariat for the EMODnet community, funded by the European Commission’s Directorate-General for Maritime Affairs and Fisheries (DGMARE).
