After the success of the 2015 edition, the Italian members of the EMODnet family are proud to invite you to the second Italian EMODnet Day, named “Marine data for the industry and the private sector towards sustainable development”. Since 2009, EMODnet has been an initiative funded by the EU Commission (DG MARE) that collects and makes available marine data at EU level through a network of over 150 organisations.
The conference will be an occasion for cross-fertilisation between EMODnet members and users, and will see the participation of representatives from ministries, regional government bodies, public research institutes, as well as private companies. Use cases of EMODnet data will open a discussion on how marine open data can foster the development of several sectors in the Italy’s blue economy, such as tourism, environment, aquaculture, etc.
The event will take place in Trieste on 8 June 2018.
