EMODnet Seabed Habitats attend 12th Panhellenic Symposium of Fisheries and Oceanography

The Hellenic Centre for Marine Research (HCMR) represented EMODnet Seabed Habitats at the 12th Panhellenic Symposium of Fisheries and Oceanography, held at the Ionian University in Corfu, Greece, between 31st May and 3rd June.

The symposium focussed on ‘Blue Growth’ for the Adriatic-Ionian macroregion and the eastern Mediterranean, with the purpose of promoting greater collaboration between academic and research communities.

EUSeaMap was presented as an example of how data communities can organise themselves to improve access to quality-assured, standardised and harmonised marine data to ultimately facilitate investment in sustainable coastal and offshore activities.
