Goal of the conference is to present the new Central Portal of the European Marine Observation and Data Network (EMODnet).
The conference will showcase the upgraded EMODnet Central Portal and the added value of a single entry point to discover, search, visualise and download all of EMODnet's marine data and data products, and the value of centralised features and functionalities.
EMODnet experts will present the latest developments and innovations in EMODnet's in situ marine data services, user-interface and infrastructure to meet user and policy needs for a digital and green future. This will include EMODnet's key role in the EU Digital Twin Ocean, that aims to model the ocean's multiple components, provide knowledge and understanding of the past and present and create trustable predictions of its future behaviour.
The conference will also discuss how the EMODnet offer is evolving in terms of diversifying data collection, filling data gaps in existing parameters, resolution and geographical scope, expanding data parameters, and increasing EMODnet's offer of marine data and knowledge for societally relevant topics.
