WISE-Marine portal launched

Knowledge-sharing platform WISE-Marine up and running after conference in Malta at start of October.
Published: 31 October 2017

​​The WISE-Marine webs​​​​​ite is now live after being officially launched at the EU’s Our Ocean Conference 2017, 5-6 October in Malta.

The web-based portal is for sharing information on the marine environment across European seas, making data available according to common standards. This information will be in support of policy-making and measuring progress towards attaining the good environmental status (GES) as laid down in the Marine Strategy Framework Directive (MSFD) as well as other EU-level policies.

WISE-Marine was developed in a partnership between the European Commission’s Directorate-General for Environment (DG ENV), the Joint Research Centre (JRC), the European Environment Agency (EEA), and Eurostat. ICES was among other key contributors that also included the EC’s Directorate-General for Maritime Affairs and Fisheries (DG MARE) and Directorate General for Research and Innovation (DG RTD) and Regional Seas Conventions.

ICES has been on the steering group, helping with strategic direction, as well as with work on elaborating the metadata catalogue and data visualization.​
