EMODnet for Global Stakeholders

EMODnet resources for Global Stakeholders

EMODnet has an increasingly global outlook with an increasing number of datasets available through EMODnet services from seas and oceans beyond European waters, including across the Atlantic Ocean, the Southern Ocean and Arctic Ocean. The international user base is also growing from Africa to China, together with international blue economy industries.

Internationally, EMODnet already engages with the IODE and OBIS, contributing over 50% of European biogeographical datasets to EurOBIS. And EMODnet is also engaging with international initiatives and stakeholders outside of Europe to move towards greater harmonization and interoperability. This is essential to meet the goals set out in the International UN 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development and contribute to a data and knowledge rich base for delivering the Decade of Ocean Science for Sustainable Development (2021-2030) and others including the Nippon Foundation-GEBCO Seabed 2030 Project, the Sendai Framework for Disaster Risk Reduction and the COP21 Paris agreement on climate change.

Some international data initiatives that EMODnet collaborates with:

Some partnerships:

  • EMODnet Bathymetry Memorandum of Understanding with international Seabed 2030 / Nippon Foundation / GEBCO
  • EMODnet Biology partnerships with EurOBIS and OBIS
