Towards an All-Atlantic Data Space for the Ocean

Enhancing the use of standards, best practices, and partnerships for information and data sharing across the Atlantic

3rd June, from 13:00 – 15:00 UTC / 15:00 - 17:00 CEST

A workshop jointly organised by the All-Atlantic Ocean Research Alliance (AANChOR), the G7 Future of the Seas and Oceans Initiative, H2020 Blue-Cloud, H2020 iAtlantic and H2020 AtlantECO, as a side-event at the All-Atlantic2021 R&I for a Sustainable Ocean Stakeholder Conference 

The past, present and future of an All-Atlantic Data Space for the Ocean

The purpose of this workshop is to provide an arena to debate about EU and international initiatives working to harmonize and facilitate data sharing across the Atlantic, and provide demonstrations of available tools, training, and the latest open science ‘blue cloud’ technologies to make data findable, accessible, interoperable, and reusable.

The workshop engages Atlantic partners in a dialogue to identify the technical needs and challenges of data sharing across the Atlantic ‘pole to pole’, and work to establish the necessary collaborations between nations and organizations required to jointly address regional and global ocean issues in the coming decade.

The goals and objectives of AANCHOR, the G7 Future of the Seas and Oceans Initiative and of the H2020 iAtlanticAtlantECO and Blue-Cloud initiatives all rest on this essential foundation of data sharing, and the alignment of data collection and management practices with international standards and best practices is the necessary first step towards the transformational changes required to meet Sustainable Development Goals, the goals of the UN Decade of Ocean Science for Sustainable Development, and the development of a sustainable Blue Economy.
