• Mission: 

    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: 

    Connecting Data to key European Data Management service providers via Blue-Cloud: Odyssea and the Blue-Cloud data can be integrated thanks to the development of the Odyssea’s Marinomica application. Marinomica is able to provide bidirectional data transfer and integration via API and more ‘traditional’ methods and seeks to connect to services to extract data as well as providing access to data, models and derived products produced by the ODYSSEA consortium.

    Joint dissemination/communication activities: The Blue-Cloud and Odyssea consortium are planning to organise joint communication activities to disseminate their project results to the academic and private sectors.
