1 Eurocean November 2009 1/14 Marine knowledge in integrated maritime policy Iain Shepherd European Commission

2 General Objective To create the optimal conditions for the sustainable use of the oceans and seas, as well as the sustainable growth in maritime sectors and coastal regions through the promotion of coherent and integrated decision making in relation to the seas coastal regions and maritime industries. Eurocean November 2009 2/14

3 Indicators GDP in maritime industries meeting requirements of Marine Strategy Framework Directive Unemployment in coast Eurocean November 2009 3/14

4 Specific Objective 1 To drive forward the shift from sectoral to holistic decision making in maritime affairs at sea basin, Member state regional and international level, through the promotion of integrated governance and spatial planning. Eurocean November 2009 4/11 Plans for Arctic Baltic Mediterranean

5 Specific Objective 2 To increase operational efficiency, stimulate innovation and reduce uncertainty for those working on marine and maritime matters by developing tools which cut across sea or coastal related sectoral policies, including the integration of cross-border and cross- sectoral surveillance activities through a common information sharing environment and facilitating the sharing, re-use and dissemination of marine data and knowledge to industry, public authorities and the research community.

8 EIONET, Guy Fawkes 2009 8/19 why marine data is underused Discovery of Data. –Especially difficult outside your own community Access to data. –Confidentiality –Desire of owners to exploit added-value themselves Use of data. –Often restricted to research Cost of data. –Landsat fiasco Coherence of Data. –Especially cross-disciplinary and cross-border Quality of Data. –Data unaccompanied by precision estimates is useless Quantity of Data. –Are we undersampling?

9 Marine Knowledge Objectives to reduce operational costs –private industry –public decision-making –marine scientific research to increase competition to reduce uncertainty Eurocean November 2009 9/14

11 EIONET, Guy Fawkes 2009 11/19 tentative architecture Accredited data centres 1.the secure, long term, curation of key marine data sets 2.make available clear, searchable information on their data holdings. European Disciplinary Groups 1.access to all raw observations held at data centres within that discipline layers indicating density of observation, quality of data, 3.seamless (gridded or polygon) data layers over whole sea basins. Sea-Basin Checkpoints 1.check these data layers, 2. ensure that the data from each disciplinary group are mutually compatible 3.define priorities for further observations based on interaction with local Steering Committee assemble the sea-basin priorities to draw up a set of overall priorities for further action Secretariat1.prepare meetings, 2. manage contracts with the disciplinary groups and sea-basin checkpoints, 3.ensure deadlines are met 4. prepare an annual report of activity to the Commission.
