The EuroSea project subtitled ‘Improving and Integrating European Ocean Observing and Forecasting Systems for Sustainable use of the Oceans’ is a Horizon 2020 Innovation Action running from November 2019 to December 2023. EuroSea brings together 55 institutes from EU and third countries and is a contribution to the Global Ocean Observing System, GOOS, and the G7 Future of the Seas and Oceans initiative.
EuroSea is accelerating the Technology Readiness Levels of instruments, sensors and platforms, and integrating these observations with ocean models, delivering cost-effective actionable information for improved ocean governance and monitoring. EuroSea focuses on innovation in the full ocean observing value chain – from the requirement setting to data collection and delivery of forecasts and information. EuroSea impact will result in knowledge transfer towards innovation in the European ocean observing, monitoring and governance in support of a sustainable blue economy and responding to policy needs.
In EuroSea, EuroGOOS is co-leading with IOC-UNESCO the work package on governance and coordination (WP1) and leading the work package on engagement, dissemination, exploitation and legacy (WP8). EuroGOOS is also actively involved in other work packages and in particular WP3 which brings together several EuroGOOS task teams.
