(9th June 2016)

Did you miss the BlueBRIDGE workshop at the European Maritime Day in Turku? Needless to say, BlueBRIDGE has got it covered for you.

The focus of the workshop was placed on the current challenges that Blue Growth sector data practitioners are facing and on their needs in terms of data management services. Around 40 attendees were present, joined by BlueBRIDGE experts and two specialists from the marine & maritime fields, to discuss a multitude of topics including VREs, aquaculture tools and sustainability of data services.

Main Recommendations

  •     The aquaculture sector is in great need of performance and environmental evaluation tools that also cover forecasting.
  •     Virtual Research Environments (VREs) are the approach for the future to address the current data challenges of the Blue Growth sector.
  •     Building on existing e-infrastructures and re-using data produced by third parties is a must to deliver cost-efficient and added value services.
  •     The sustainability of the services is key to stimulating adoption.
