Sustainable blue economy
Public-private partnerships with industries: ports, coastal communities, shipping, energy, fisheries and aquaculture, and technology manufacturers
EuroSea works to improve the European ocean observing and forecasting system in a global context.
We bring together key European actors of ocean observing and forecasting with users of oceanographic products and services. The EuroSea innovation demonstrators are focused on operational services, ocean health, and climate.
EuroSea is a European Union Innovation Action funded through the European Commission research funding programme Horizon 2020 under a call supporting the G7 Future of Seas and Oceans Flagship Initiative.
Coastal resilience and operational services demonstrator advances the collection, quality control, interpretation and use of sea level data, and will lead to new sea level and climate services.
Ocean health demonstrator works with users in aquaculture, fisheries, tourism, and environmental agencies to co-create products that help identify and foresee extreme marine events (e.g. low pH or oxygen levels and marine heat waves), supporting adaptive management decisions.
Ocean climate indicators demonstrator assesses the ocean role in climate through new ocean climate indicators. The economic value of the ocean carbon sink will be evaluated using a combined observing, integration, and dissemination approach.
The EuroSea consortium has set out to optimize, advance and innovate many aspects of the ocean observing value chain, from technologies to products and services, from governance to capacities and best practice sharing. Communications will be an important enabler in this work. We are developing an impact monitoring protocol which will allow us assessing the impact for the whole project duration.
