Marine Data to support Aquaculture in the North Atlantic

News article |

The online event “Marine Data to Support Aquaculture in the North Atlantic” was organised on 20-21 October 2020 by the European Commission’s general directorates for Maritime Affairs and Fisheries (DG MARE) and Defence, Industry and Space (DG DEFIS), the European Aquaculture Technology and Innovation Platform (EATiP), the European Commission’s programmes of Copernicus Marine (Copernicus Marine Environment Monitoring Service – CMEMS) and European Marine Observation and Data Network (EMODnet). More than 60 participants attended the event, with a background equally deriving from the aquaculture industry and the policy/coastal managers sector (37% each), with another 24% of attendees working on aquaculture research and 2% of participants from other areas, including data providers and consultancy agencies. The workshop was the first co-designed event to explore how Open Data can be used to support sectors of the Blue Economy. More workshops will follow.
