​​​​​​​​Lead Organization: The French Research Institute for the Exploitation of the Sea (IFREMER), France

Duration: 2016-2020

ICES contact: Neil Holdsworth, Head of Data and Information

Project objectives:​

SeaDataCloud is the follow-on from SeaDataNet (FP7) – a pan-European infrastructure developed by NO​DCs (National Oceanographic Data Center) and major research institutes around Europe. This phase will look at more effective and convenient access to marine data through upg​rading the standards, tools and services and incorporating dev​elopments of new sensors, Cloud services and High Performance Co​​​mputing (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 cent​res and streams, and operate with other European and international networks.

ICES role:

  • Project network coordination (WP2)
  • Expansion and governance of metadata and data content (WP5)
  • Governance of standards and development of common services (WP8)
  • Developments of upstream services (WP9)
  • Developments of downstream services (WP10)
  • Development, update and publication of data products for European sea regions (WP11)

This project has received funding from the ​​​European Commission's Horizon 2020​​ research and innovation programme under grant agreement no 730960​.
