Launch of the bilingual EMOD-PACE project website 

We are very excited to announce the launch of our EMOD-PACE website in support of the EU and China Blue Partnership - please visit us here.

The European Union and China have set-up two collaborative projects with a focus on marine data exchange and diplomacy, which are intricately connected:
  • The European funded EMOD-PACE (EMODnet Partnership for China and Europe); and
  • The CEMDnet (China-EU Marine Data Network Partnership) - ‘中国-欧盟海洋数据网络伙伴关系
The new bilingual project website provides a gateway to the EU-China projects and related marine data. Project information and news about the deliverables will be made available throughout. In addition, some background to the project is provided about the interconnected projects from EU and China. The joint efforts being made are bringing together the Chinese National Marine Data and Information System (NMDIS) and EMODnet.

This ground-breaking EU-China collaboration is a concrete step which is being made to achieve the shared objectives of the EU-China Blue Partnership - effective ocean governance for the conservation and sustainable use of the oceans and their resources. EMOD-PACE-CEMDnet will support and contribute to the key aims of the EU-China Blue Partnership which include sustainable fisheries; a thriving, sustainable maritime economy and healthy oceans.

Your comments and suggestions related to the website and/or the project can be communicated via the EMOD-PACE contact page.

The European Atlas of the Seas soon available in 24 languages!

Citizens from all around Europe will soon have access to stunning maps and interactive marine information in their own language, making the European Atlas of the Seas an even more accessible ocean literacy tool. In the course of September, visitors of the Atlas will be able to choose from 24 European languages, including Greek, Danish and Gaelic. 

New functionalities will also be made available on the Atlas next month, such as a new print tool, the integration of short stories highlighting interesting map layers and an interactive help tool to guide you through what is new. The EMODnet community will be pleased to learn that the new EMODnet Bathymetry World Base Layer will soon be available as a background, providing the Atlas with the latest map of ocean bathymetry.

More information will be provided in the coming days. Stay tuned in the next EMODnet newsdigest and on twitter (@EuropeAtlasSeas / @EMODnet)!
