Short outline: EMODnet is increasingly expanding and diversifying its collaborations and partnerships with data providers and users. There are already some tangible examples of where EMODnet cooperates with citizen science projects e.g. EMODnet Physics and EMODnet Chemistry. This workshop will explore these existing collaborations, hear from invited experts about wider citizen science initiatives and discuss how EMODnet in its next phase can more systematically link with citizen science to not only expand the data provision from citizen science, but also find ways to encourage citizen science to work closer with EMODnet across the full value chain.

The event will touch:
  • EC DG MARE intervention on EMODnet next phase
  • Setting the Scene: Presentation to set the scene on the interaction between EMODnet and marine citizen science in Europe.
  • Case studies of Citizen Science for EMODnet: Four case studies from citizen science communities across the value chain.
  • Panel Discussion: Panel and plenary discussions on three topics covering the technical challenges for citizen science data and upgrading knowledge of citizen science within the EMODnet platform.

Call for posters – EMODnet Open Conference 2021

EMODnet welcomes the EMOD-network and wider community to submit abstracts for posters relating directly to EMODnet open access data, data products, applications and interoperability across data services, across the following themes:
  • EMODnet contributors (data collection and ocean observation, data providers, data management initiatives and infrastructures, etc.);
  • EMODnet for users (use cases of EMODnet data and data products by policy, research, industry, civil society, other);
  • EMODnet for innovation (development of added value products and applications using EMODnet data and data products);
  • EMODnet partnerships (collaboration with other services and stakeholders, and contribution to EU and global initiatives).
All posters should directly reference, and have a tangible link, with EMODnet e.g. as a data contributor, service provider, user, application, and/or partnership. You are invited to submit your abstract using the dedicated form by 6 April 2021.
Once received, your abstract will be reviewed and validated by the co-organisers. All approved abstracts will need to produce an electronic poster which will be made available fully online for participants. In addition, each poster will submit a 1-minute pitch presentation, to be screened during plenary sessions. More information about the format of the digital poster and video will be provided by email once the abstract will be approved.
Key dates:
  • Pre-registration to the conference: From 4 March 2021
  • Deadline abstract submission: 6 April 2021
  • Notification on abstract acceptance: By the 19 April 2021
  • Deadline to submit your e-poster and 1-minute pitch video (once your abstract is approved): 1 June 2021
  • EMODnet Open Conference 2021: 14-16 June 2021

EMODnet Physics: interpolation of velocity measurements -Charles Troupin, Alexander Barth (GHER, University of Liege)

GHER, released the DIVAnd tool for surface current field interpolation. The tool uses HFR velocity measurements (as available from EMODnet Physics portal).
The code developed specifically for the project (data reading, plotting etc) is stored on the ULiège GitLab repository: https://gitlab.uliege.be/gher/diva-emodnetphysics.
The code developed for the interpolation of high-frequency radar data is available on GitHub: https://github.com/gher-ulg/DIVAnd_HFRadar.jl

In November, an Arctic Data Portal was launched to improve the availability, quality, timeliness, and accessibility of essential marine in situ data from the Arctic region. The Portal is a joint initiative of EMODnet, CMEMS, INSTAC, Copernicus In Situ Coordination Group and EuroGOOS, and was implemented under EMODnet Physics. The project started with two events: a kick-off meeting (20 November) bringing together representatives from Copernicus, EMODnet, European Polar Board, the Southern Ocean Observing System, the Arctic Data Committee, and EuroGOOS, and a dedicated webinar (27 November) attracting over 100 attendees in 24 countries to discuss the role of the Portal for unlocking new data that will improve the marine services in the Arctic.

EMODnet 10 Years Webinar – 22 Sep 2020

Celebrate 10 years of EMODnet by joining us at a virtual gathering on 22 September 2020 (14:00-17:00 CEST). This webinar will be an opportunity to take stock of key EMODnet achievements over the past decade with showcases and testimonials from data providers, users and partners – as a celebration moment. This online event will also set the stage for a forward look at the Open Conference in June 2021 to co-design the next phase of EMODnet. Registration is free and open to anyone with an interest in EMODnet:  https://www.emodnet.eu/webinar

SeaDataCloud Online User Workshop Hi-Tech to High knowledge

The National Institute of Oceanography and Applied Geophysics (OGS), on behalf of the SeaDataCloud partnership, is pleased to invite you to the SeaDataCloud User Workshop, which will be held via webinar.
  • The SeaDataCloud is an EU H2020 programme aimed at advancing the SeaDataNet infrastructure: a powerful virtual data management system providing integrated and standardized data and products on-line.
  • Currently, over 100 National Oceanographic Data Centres from 34 European coastal states make up the SeaDataNet network, giving access to more than 2.0 million high quality data sets.
  • Data, spanning from physical oceanography, chemistry, geology, to geophysics, bathymetry and biology, have been collected by using a kaleidoscope of remote sensing and in situ instruments.
Do not wait! Register now!

Registration and online attendance to the training are free of charge.

Main topic and Goal
Computer scientists and marine researchers will illustrate data services, metadata services and software tools provided by SeaDataNet.
Target audience and benefits
  • The workshop is intended for marine sciences excellence: researchers and any other professional needing data for different purposes (e.g. ecosystem modelling or prediction, management, implementation of EU or international legislation).
  • Attending the webinar will help to realize the advantages of the SeaDataNet infrastructure. Participants will become confident with the SeaDataNet data flow system: from data extraction, by means of the discovery interface, to data elaboration, through the software tools.
