  • Engage industry - best practices

    For some time now, the private sector has been namechecked by marine observatories and public data-sharing initiatives as a target-user of their resources and/or as a potential source of data, with little concomitant targeted development by these initiatives to facilitate this. Experiences in the framework of the Europe Marine Observation and Data Network (EMODnet) reveal that the current business-as-usual scenario is not effective for marine observatories and public data-sharing initiatives to actively engage industry, either as users or providers of data.

  • Sensor technologies

    Over the course of successive EU Framework Programmes, the European Commission has made a significant investment in research and innovation projects designed to advance ocean observing and monitoring capacities through the development of marine environmental sensing technologies. There have been varying levels of transfer of intellectual property arising from these projects towards market/application and the reasons for this are both complex and varied. This guide considers some of the success stories as well as common challenges and bottlenecks along the value chain from research project to market/application and proposes, where possible, some recommendations.
