Towards an All-Atlantic Data Space for the Ocean - Join us on 3 June

  • By Federico Drago

We would like to invite the ocean science community to join the upcoming Towards an All-Atlantic Data Space for the Ocean online workshop on 3 June, starting at 13:00 UTC (15:00 CEST) that the Blue-Cloud initiative is organising together with the All-Atlantic Ocean Research Alliance (AANChOR), the G7 Future of the Seas and Oceans Initiative, H2020 iAtlantic and H2020 AtlantECO, initiatives, as a side event of the All-Atlantic2021 R&I for a Sustainable Ocean Stakeholder Conference. You can find more information and the agenda here.

The event is organised around two panel discussions engaging an extremely rich list of panellists, while engagement with the audience will also be ensured via a tool called Mentimeter.
Your participation would be really valuable.

  • Session 1: Measure Once, Use Many Times – standards, best practices, challenges and incentives for maximizing the use of ocean data in the Atlantic region - chaired by Jay Pearlman, IEEE / SG-OBPS. The focus of the session will be on sharing best practices towards FAIR data/interoperability (practical examples) from across the Atlantic region. The panellists will showcase what their organizations are doing with respect to interoperability through the use of international standards, as well as insights and lessons learned from their perspective and how could this contribute towards moving further collaboration across the Atlantic. The panel will then move around challenges/opportunities ahead.
  • Session 2: Towards an All-Atlantic Data Space for the Ocean: Needs, challenges, opportunities, and partnerships will be an open, moderated discussion, using some guided questions via Mentimeter, on the priority actions required to achieve the goals of an All-Atlantic Data Space. This will be moderated by Martin Visbeck, GEOMAR.

Registration for the event is open here
