SeaDataCloud is the follow-on from SeaDataNet (FP7) – a pan-European infrastructure developed by NODCs (National Oceanographic Data Center) and major research institutes around Europe. This phase will look at more effective and convenient access to marine data through upgrading the standards, tools and services and incorporating developments of new sensors, Cloud services and High Performance Computing (HPC). More users will be engaged for longer sessions by including advanced services in a Virtual Research Environment. SeaDataCloud will improve services to users and data providers, optimise connecting data centres and streams, and operate with other European and international networks.
This project has received funding from the European Commission's Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme under grant agreement no 730960.
