Blue-Cloud Virtual Labs in support of Sustainable Development GoalsEach one of the five Blue-Cloud demonstrators is developing Virtual Labs for the benefit of the wider community, in order to demonstrate Blue-Cloud’s potential in different fields of marine research, ranging from biodiversity to environmental science, as well as fisheries and aquaculture.

In addition, different pilot applications were developed in the framework of the Blue-Cloud Hackathon event held in February 2022. Finally, in the framework of the Blue-Cloud synergies programme additional Virtual Labs were developed as pilots to support the work of other research infrastructures.
