The European Marine Observation and Data Network (EMODnet)

The European Marine Observation and Data Network (EMODnet) consists of more than 120 organisations assembling marine data, products and metadata to make these fragmented resources more available to public and private users relying on quality-assured, standardised and harmonised marine data which are interoperable and free of restrictions on use. EMODnet is currently in its third development phase with the target to be fully deployed by 2020.
