Brief description

The European Marine Observation and Data Network (EMODnet) consists of more than 160 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 second development phase with the target to be fully deployed by 2020.

Our role

Trust-IT supports the EMODnet secretariat on three defined objectives, being the development of the EMODnet web presence,  the improvement of the technical monitoring system and the production of the EMODnet annual reports. In order to increase the visibility and identity of EMODnet towards its key stakeholders, Trust-IT will also be in charge of the content animation of the EMODnet website and of the Maritime Forum website.

Duration and funding

Dec 2016 to Dec 2017

Since September 2013, the European Marine Observation and Data Network (EMODnet) is supported by a dedicated Secretariat funded by the European Commission (tender MARE/2012/15).
