The ODYSSEA project has developed an interoperable and cost-effective platform that fully integrates networks of observing and forecasting systems across the Mediterranean basin, addressing both the open sea and the coastal zone. The platform collects the data from the many databases maintained by agencies, public authorities, and institutions of Mediterranean EU and non-EU countries, integrating existing earth observation facilities and networks in the Mediterranean Sea building on key initiatives such as Copernicus, GEOSS, GOOS, EMODNet, ESFRI, Lifewatch, Med-OBIS, GBIF, AquaMaps, Marine IBA e-atlas, MAPAMED and others with marine and maritime links.

Collaboration with Blue-Cloud

Joint dissemination/communication activities: ODYSSEA has joined the Horizon Results Booster group where the Blue-Cloud was a member in order to exploit joint dissemination activities. The main outcome of this cooperation has been translated into a policy brief “Nourishing Blue Economy and Sharing Ocean Knowledge - Ocean information for sustainable development” whose recommendations have been presented at the event “Blue-Cloud: An Open Science platform for collaborative marine research across the Atlantic and beyond” in December 2021.
