The European Aquaculture Technology and Innovation Platform (EATIP), EMODnet and and the Copernicus Marine Service together with DG MARE and DG DEFIS are hosting the online virtual event “Marine data to support aquaculture in the North Atlantic” on October 20-21 2020 (both days from 10 to 13 CET).
This event will explore opportunities and applications for open source marine environmental data to support and innovate the aquaculture sector in the North Atlantic region. The ultimate goal is to set up a collaborative platform with key stakeholders to develop a methodology for ecosystem based management of aquaculture based on existing data.
The workshop will be held as a virtual and highly interactive event, using tools for on-line discussions and co-creation.
The main objectives of the workshop are:
The participants will be a mix of experienced Copernicus / EMODnet users (both involved in Blue-Cloud as blue data infrastructures), data providers, coastal managers and aquaculture data end users. Blue-Cloud partners are also joining the event, in order to provide our insights on the critical topics of sustainable aquaculture and on data-driven support to policymakers and researchers, as well as to gather relevant feedback from key actors all around Europe.
Learn more about Blue-Cloud's contribution to aquaculture by watching the webinar on our demonstrator "Aquaculture Monitor" which took place on 25 September, featuring experts from Ifremer, FAO, and CLS.
