EuroGOOS Fixed Platforms Task Team organised its first on-site meeting since its kick-off

The EuroGOOS Fixed Platform Task Team (FPTT) organised on 4 and 5 April 2023 its first on-site meeting since its kick-off in March 2021. The meeting was hosted by CNR in Rome, Italy, and was co-organised by the EuroGOOS office and EMSO-ERIC. The 2-days meeting was followed onsite by 16 attendees and more than 10 remotely. First day, during a closed session, the group performed a SWOT analysis of the Task Team, and the objectives and goals were revised and discussed, as well as a leaflet promoting the Task Team. The results from the first day were presented the second day in an open session which included short presentations from different national, European and global initiatives, projects and programs related with Fixed Platforms, data sharing and observing infrastructure governance (presentations available here) highlighting the potential synergies and collaboration between those initiatives and the Fixed Platform Task Team. The meeting ended with a discussion on next steps and actions to promote the activities of the Task Team.
