Marine Knowledge 2020

The European Commission have launched a new initiative aiming to unlock and assemble data from different sources and facilitate their use for purposes beyond those that they were originally intended for.

‘Marine knowledge 2020’ will have 3 major benefits: Improving the efficiency of those who use marine data; opening new opportunities and driving marine sector innovation; reducing uncertainty in our knowledge of ocean behaviour. A prototype data network, the European Marine Observation and Data Network (WMODnet) has already been established. For more information, visit the EC Maritime Forum website
