Ocean4Biotech is one of the European projects Blue-Cloud is cooperating with to enrich the demonstrators quality dataset and organise joint dissemination activities. More information about this cooperation is available in our synergy webpage.
The Ocean4Biotech project is organising Co-Creation Hackathon Challenge for contributing your knowledge and innovative ideas to identify the ingredients needed for a European Marine Biotechnology Innovation Ecosystem of Excellence. All interested stakeholders are invited to join, on 10 and 11 July 2021!
About the hackathon
Marine Biotechnology is a science still in its infancy, but it holds a huge research and innovation potential as we discover and learn more about marine organisms. Products and applications are highly diverse, spanning food production, cosmetics, pharmaceutical and wider medical applications. The success of future growth relies on scientific knowledge covering marine life and wider sciences. At the same time, acting responsibly and protecting the ocean and its marine environments is necessary and part of the United Nations Sustainable Goal 14 “life below water”. That is why we need You and your ideas and knowledge to help us define the ingredients of such a Marine Biotechnology Innovation Ecosystem.
Providing access to data resources & interoperable tools for open marine science and applications: Blue-Cloud featured in AtlantECO podcast
The AtlantECO podcast is a science popularisation show, revolving around conversations between the host and a guest to discuss aspects of AtlantECO, a marine science project which focuses on the Atlantic Ocean. The 23rd of November episode of the AtlantECO podcast series was dedicated to Blue-Cloud.
Blue-Cloud Open Science platform as a model for a sustainable Data federation in EOSC: workshop at the EOSC Symposium 2022
The Blue-Cloud model, with its 16 services and million datasets openly available, was discussed during a dedicated session organised on the 17th of November at the EOSC Symposium, the main annual event of the European Open Science community taking place this week in Prague, Czech Republic.
Blue-Cloud highlighted as a successful use case for the Copernicus WEkEO DIAS, enabling marine researchers to access, combine, and share quality environmental data.
Collaboration, cooperation and shared visions are the foundations of every successful synergy. Creating open science platforms to facilitate the use and reuse of oceanic data is a team work activity, and cannot be achieved by one project alone. Blue-Cloud poses special attention to this aspect for creating valuable cooperation among projects operating in the Blue Economy and Marine Research and over the course of the last three years has established strong synergies with initiatives in this area to foster the adoption of its innovative open-science solutions.
For the first time, Blue-Cloud will be a data provider in the Ocean Hackathon organised by Campus Mondial de la Mer, supporting exciting challenges for marine research and the blue economy.
The Wildlife Tracker for Oceans has developed a marine conservation application exploiting data from the Blue-Cloud VLab Zoo & Phytoplankton EOV products. On 26 July the team held a webinar to show how this app was successfully implemented for the Galapagos Whale Shark Project.
