Task Teams are important operational components of the EOOS framework setting out a vision and coordination mechanisms for a truly integrated ocean observing in Europe, for the benefit of society, science and innovation. Task Teams work to:
- Coordinate the existing efforts of the individual observation communities;
- Provide an up to date picture of the reporting platforms in Europe;
- Facilitate development of common operational data procedures and services (incl. data quality control and data management);
- Foster scientific and technological development, joint programmes and concerted actions, enhancing the European marine infrastructure capacity.
