EMODnet and the European Atlas of the Seas featured in the EU Blue Economy Report 2022
On 19 May 2022, the first day of European Maritime Day 2022, the European Commission Directorate General for Maritime Affairs and Fisheries (DG MARE) and the Joint Research Centre (JRC) released the fifth edition of the EU Blue Economy Report. The report provides a comprehensive overview of the latest trends in the EU’s blue economy sectors, providing sector-specific, socio-economic knowledge to support informed decisions by policy-makers and blue economy operators and stakeholders.
In the report, EMODnet is featured as a key asset for integrated, harmonised in situ marine data, including Human Activities as a EU focal point for national Maritime Spatial Planning (MSP). The European Atlas of the Seas is highlighted in the context of the European Coalition for Ocean Literacy (EU4Ocean), to which EMODnet is a partner, and MSP in the EU.
