BlueBRIDGE was the European initiative funded under the H2020 framework to further develop and exploit the iMarine e-Infrastructure data services for an ecosystem approach to fisheries. BlueBRIDGE combined the forces of European and International renowned institutions (e.g. ICES, IRD, FAO, UNEP) who share the goal of providing scientifically sound advice on the sustainable use of marine resources to their member countries, international organizations and relevant Commissions, but also at local or individual level for national academic institutions and SMEs. BlueBRIDGE delivered Virtual Research Environments (VREs) in various domains (e.g. fisheries, biology, economics, statistics, environment, mathematics, social sciences, natural sciences, computer science) that supported knowledge generation from data collection and aggregation to the production of indicators and indices or other information products such as fact-sheets, reports, and data repositories.
