WP8 delivers a critical support to the project and its demonstrators, assisting EuroSea in the delivery of viable and targeted outputs, displaying how EuroSea is improving the information provision to a range of users, and ensuring a lasting legacy.

The EuroSea legacy is designed from the outset to ensure the outcomes inform relevant political agendas and best practice in knowledge and technology transfer. WP8 delivers input into the ocean observation strategies within the G7, Belmont Forum and the UN Decade of Ocean Science for Sustainable Development.

WP8 engages with the project partners and a broad range of public and private stakeholders in co-design of the project results and outputs and their active promotion. WP8 also supports capacity development to empower strategic partnerships and support business development for sustainable blue economy.

WP8 explicitly considers governance, user and science-policy interfaces, inclusiveness, as well as gender and diversity in ocean observing and forecasting through the established set of Ethics and European Responsible Research and Innovation Principles.
