iMarine: data e-infrastructure initiative for fisheries management and conservation of marine living resources


Date: 28/07/2014


iMarine, a project co-funded by the EU under the Framework Programme 7, is an open and collaborative initiative that supports the implementation of an ecosystems approach to fisheries management and the conservation of living marine resources. iMarine provides an open access e-infrastructure that facilitates sharing of a multitude of data, collaborative analysis, processing and mining processing, as well as the publication and dissemination of newly generated knowledge. Practitioners from multiple scientific fields such as fisheries, biodiversity and ocean observation benefit from 'e-infrastructure capacity'; 'application bundles' (access tools by topic modules: biodiversity, geospatial, statistics, interoperability); 'data heterogeneity management'; 'policy best practices'.
