EMODnet presents at the 25th Session of the IODE Committee
From 18 until 22 February 2019, representatives from oceanographic data centres and major marine data initiatives worldwide gathered at the 25th Session of UNESCO’s International Data and Information Exchange (IODE) Committee in Tokyo (Japan) to discuss progress and future plans of the IODE Programme, and the contribution of Europe and other regions. The IODE programme was established in 1961 to enhance marine research, exploitation and development, by facilitating the exchange of oceanographic data and information between participating Member States, and by meeting the needs of users for data and information products.
Jan-Bart Calewaert, Head of the EMODnet Secretariat, participated in the Conference, giving an overview of the progress on marine data and information sharing efforts made in Europe over the last few years. Several other members of EMODnet partner organisations also participated to the IODE meeting and conference, either as country representatives from Europe or as representatives from relevant organisations such as SeaDataNet and JCOMM.
