European Marine Observation and Data Network (EMODnet)

EMODnet is a network of organisations working together to observe the sea, to make the marine data collected freely available and interoperable, to create seamless data layers across sea-basins and to distribute the data and data products through the Internet. The primary aim of EMODnet is to unlock existing but fragmented and hidden marine data and make them accessible for a wide range of users including private bodies, public authorities and researchers. 

The European Atlas of the Seas (EAS)

The European Atlas of the Seas (EAS) is an easy to use and interactive web-based atlas on the coasts and seas within and around Europe. Since September 2017, Seascape Belgium has taken over the management and further development of the European Atlas from the Joint Research Centre (JRC). Following an intensive initial period, a new version of the Atlas was released on the 11 June 2018, offering new features and more content. More than 120 new map layers were added, mostly provided by EMODnet and Eurostat.

Integrated Assessment of Atlantic Marine Ecosystems in Space and Time (iAtlantic)

The European Horizon 2020 Project iAtlantic takes an interdisciplinary scientific approach to collect Atlantic deep and open-ocean ecosystem data and integrate it with ocean circulation and connectivity models linked with climatic data and forecasts. By bridging ocean observing systems, exchanging data, researchers, and equipment from across the entire Atlantic, the project aims to predict where and when potentially synergistic effects of global change and multiple ecosystem stressors will occur.

Seas, Oceans & Public Health in Europe (SOPHIE)

This European Horizon 2020 Coordination and Support Action (CSA) brings marine and environmental scientists together with medical and social scientists, public health and other experts to foster interdisciplinary research on the interconnections between Oceans had Human Health in Europe. The project is gathering information from many different sources: from citizens; from research findings; from data repositories; and from existing European policies.

A Trans-Atlantic assessment and deep-water ecosystem-based spatial management plan for Europe (ATLAS).

The European Horizon 2020 Project ATLAS will gather diverse new information on sensitive Atlantic ecosystems, including Vulnerable Marine Ecosystems (VMEs) and Ecologically or Biologically Sensitive Areas (EBSAs), to produce a step-change in our understanding of their connectivity, functioning and responses to future changes in human use and ocean climate. Seascape experts lead the work on science-policy interfaces and also contributes to the work on data management. More information at www.eu-atlas.org


INMARE (Industrial Applications of Marine Enzymes)

The European Horizon 2020 Project INMARE (Industrial Applications of Marine Enzymes) is focused on the development of innovative screening and expression platforms to discover and use the functional protein diversity from the sea. In this project, Seascape coordinates the work on communication and dissemination. For more information please visit www.inmare-h2020.eu
