The University of Aegean is a partner in the MUSICA (Multiple Use of Space for Island Clean Autonomy) project, that developed a smart multi-usage of space (MUS) platform for the concurrent use of three types of renewable energy – wind, photovoltaic and wave – at small islands. The MUS also contributed to the advancement of a successfully tested multi-use platform (MUP), which was previously developed by the University of Aegean and the private company EcoWindWater. In the process of finding optimal siting areas for the MUP, MUSICA used EMODnet map services and data to highlight areas of potential constraints.
Croatian Geological Survey used EMODnet Geology, Bathymetry and Seabed Habitats data to develop the seabed substrate and geology maps within a project that aims to map the marine habitats of the coastal area of the Adriatic Sea up to a depth of 40 m and up to 200 m in protected areas.
The availability of both depth data and geology data from one centralised point of contact (EMODnet) enabled Irwin Carr Consulting, an SME that provides specialist services that range from environmental noise, air quality, building acoustics and underwater noise, to be competitive and have efficient turn-around times on marine projects that otherwise would be delayed by prohibitively costly marine mapping work prior to impact assessments.
In a recent research paper (Effrosynidis et al., 2018), the Democritus University of Thrace (DUTH) aggregated CMEMS and EMODnet data to investigate the influence of environmental conditions on the presence-absence and the distribution of seagrass species over the Mediterranean Sea
Biosfera XXI has been using EMODnet data since 2016, mainly for its marine projects, in particular, the environmental impact assessment project “The electricity interconnection across the Biscay Gulf".
The development of EMODnet standard classifications for the various categories of seabed substrate allowed a digital map layer covering Russian, Finnish and Estonian waters to contribute towards the Gulf of Finland assessment published in 2016. This was one of the most important outcomes of the Gulf of Finland Year arranged by the three countries in 2014.
Symphony is a tool used by the Swedish Agency for Marine and Water Management (SwAM) to assess the cumulative impact of human activity in Swedish waters. In this operation, EMODnet Geology and the Bathymetry portals provided with good knowledge of the distribution of geological substrate types.
