DSD-NL 2014 - EU Data Landscape - 1. emo dnet jercio june 2014

  1. 1. The European Marine Observation and Data Network (EMODnet) JERICO summerschool EMODnet Day June 17 2014, Deltares, Netherlands Jan-Bart Calewaert (janbart.calewaert@emodnet.eu) for the EMODnet Community
  2. 2. Presentation Outline • What is EMODnet? • How did we get here? • Where are we now? • What’s new? • What’s next?
  3. 3. What is EMODnet?
  4. 4. EMODnet? • Network of +110 organisations assembling marine data, metadata & data products from diverse sources within Europe in a uniform way to – unlock fragmented & hidden marine data by making data more easily accessible, free of restrictions on use and interoperable – Produce data products of common interest
  5. 5. What does EMODnet deliver? •access to data - maintained on Member States' databases - interoperable, common standards - metadata describing time, date of measurement, quality, etc. •data products - maintained by consortium - map layers - quality indicators
  6. 6. Why EMODnet? An effective pan-European marine data infrastructure will a.o: • Improve offshore operators’ efficiency and costs in gathering and processing marine data for operational and planning purposes  estimated at 1 billion € per year • Stimulate competition and innovation in established and emerging maritime sectors  est. at 200-300 million € per yr • Improve efficiency of marine planning and legislation (e.g. environment, fisheries, transport, etc.); • Reduce uncertainty in our knowledge and ability to forecast the behaviour of the sea.
  7. 7. Uses of EMODnet data innovation – new cage design • bathymetric data – water depth • geological data – sediments for foundations • chemical data – water quality • physical data – tides, waves, currents • biological data – not endanger local wildlife Irish deep sea farm project will generate 350 direct and 150 indirect jobs
  8. 8. Uses of EMODnet data innovation – protection of cables • sediment properties for burial techniques • local human activity (fishing etc) • temperature, salinity • 48 cable failures occur in Europe each year • €6.9 billion losses
  9. 9. Uses of EMODnet data uncertainty reduction – better routing • improved charts will allow faster transit for deeper draughts • NOAA estimate that one additional foot of draught may account for between $36,000 and $288,000 additional profit per transit
  10. 10. Historic background
  11. 11. MARITIME AFFAIRS Maria Damanaki, Commissioner for Maritime Affairs and Fisheries (..) the data collected through observations can only generate knowledge and innovation if Europe's engineers and scientists are able to find, access, assemble and apply them efficiently and rapidly. At present this is often not the case.
  12. 12. Background – new vision
  13. 13. Vision for 2020 • A seamless multi-resolution digital seabed map of European waters by 2020. – highest resolution possible in areas that have been surveyed; – free of restrictions on use; – topography, geology, habitats and ecosystems; – accompanied by timely information on • physical, chemical and biological state of the overlying water column • oceanographic forecasts; – together with a process that helps Member States maximise the potential of their marine observation programmes
  14. 14. Public Consultation 2012 • GP presents options for implementation • Basis for consultation as to what we should do from 2014 onwards. • Move from project-based approach to continual process • 20 questions • 300 answers
  15. 15. Where are we now?
  16. 16. 2009 2010 2011 2012 2013 2014 2015 2016 2017 2018 2019 2020 Phase 1 – limited sea basins Phase 2 - low resolution Phase 3 - multi-resolution How does it work? • Iterative process allows users to assess and improve product by trying it out • Developed by 7 thematic assembly groups with thematic data portals • Supported by a common central portal www.emodnet.eu
  17. 17.

  33. 33. What’s next?
  34. 34. 1. Endorsed basic principles 2. Confirmed that we are on the right track 3. Identified new needs 240 replies Outcome of Public Consultation to gather ideas for third phase
  35. 35. 1) Endorsed basic principles? • need for open access to marine data, in both raw and aggregated forms; • few exceptions: – national security; – damage to heritage sites and endangered ecosystems; – commercial sensitivity; – the need to allow scientists time to publish; – safety and liability issues due to data misinterpretation.
  36. 36. 2) Confirmed we are on the right track • the architecture of the current EMODnet is sound – geology, bathymetry, physics, chemistry, biology, physical habitats and human activity • EMODnet can assist with environmental or fisheries reporting – replace "push" with "pull"
  37. 37. 3) Identified new needs • more involvement of private sector • mechanism to advise Member States and the EU on the most cost-effective sampling, surveying and observation programme for each sea-basin – sea-basin checkpoints • convergence of EMODnet, data collection in fisheries and Copernicus marine service • novel sensors that can measure parameters automatically without the need to bring samples back to the laboratory operational objectives for phase 3 of "marine knowledge 2020" Horizon 2020
  38. 38. The way ahead • Communication on Innovation in the Blue Economy and Roadmap/Action Plan – more involvement of private sector – mechanism to advise Member States and the EU on the most cost-effective sampling, surveying and observation programme for each sea-basin – convergence of EMODnet, data collection in fisheries and Copernicus marine service
  39. 39. European Marine Observation and Data Network Global Monitoring for Environment and Security Data Collection Framework in fisheries INSPIRE Directive Public Sector Information Directive
  40. 40. How to? Better integrate the separate EU initiatives for marine knowledge • Build single gateway to access data from EMODnet, Copernicus Marine Service and fisheries data made available through the Data Collection Framework; • Use European Maritime and Fisheries Fund to provide the in-situ component of Copernicus; • Bring fisheries control data into the equation; • Sett up single Expert Group for EMODnet, Copernicus Marine Service and the Data Collection Framework.
  41. 41. How to? Involve private sector more in the “Marine Knowledge 2020” initiative • Create facility for private businesses to deliver the data required for licencing offshore businesses and recommending that Member States make using this facility a condition for granting a licence; • Ensuring that the private sector is represented in the new Expert Group and the process for determining the most appropriate monitoring strategy for each sea basin; • Recommend that Member States require offshore platforms to instrument their platforms, not only to measure the impact of their own activity but also to improve understanding of the dynamics of the sea.
  42. 42. Concluding remarks • EMODnet is a long term marine data initiative supporting sustainable blue economy in Europe • Developed through stepwise approach – now halfway – the service is already useful and picking up speed to make it Fully operational Provide the best available data, free of restrictions on use Become more user friendly & fit for purpose • Can only be done together with the DATA PROVIDERS AND USERS: WE NEED YOUR HELP  find us at www.emodnet.eu or via info@emodnet.eu • Bringing observations, products, services and knowledge to users and public requires appropriate tools
