EuroSea is part of “The Future of Seas and Oceans Flagship Initiative” funded through the Horizon 2020 Blue Growth call (BG-07-2019-2020). Its vision is a truly interdisciplinary ocean observing system that delivers the essential ocean information, exploitation and innovation needed for the wellbeing, blue growth and sustainable management of the ocean.
EuroSea brings together key European actors of ocean observation and forecasting with key end users of ocean observations. It is an interdisciplinary consortium of 55 partners working together for the next 4 years allocated with a budget of almost € 12.6M. The project is coordinated by GEOMAR Helmholtz Centre for Ocean Research Kiel, Germany. The kick-off meeting offered a unique opportunity to set the scene for a successful start of the project. Partners and EuroSea supporters came together to discuss and plan the implementation of the major project goal – a sustainable ocean observing system delivering information needed for society through ocean innovation and exploitation.
