  1. European Marine Observation and Data Network Iain Shepherd European Commission MODEG 18 June 2008 – Brussels

  2. Strategic objectives for the Commission 2O05-2009 ”the particular need for an all-embracing maritime policy aimed a developing a thriving maritime economy, in an environmentally sustainable manner. Such a policy should be supported by excellence in marine scientific research, technology and innovation”

  7. data protection intellectual property rights individual privacy security classifications freedom of information freedom of expression reporting obligations legal study on data access

  8. legal study on data access • Collection of information on access rights and restrictions on marine data • Analysis of general legal issues regarding access to data • Analysis of regulatory data provided to Commission under Common Fisheries Policy

  9. sample • a range of ‘old’ and ‘new’ Member States. • Bulgaria; • France; • Greece; • Poland; • Spain; • UK. • Norway • because it has a legal regime that has been influential as far as the development of law in this area is concerned

  10. findings • more legal regimes restricting and mandating data flows at the national and EU levels than at international level • EU initiatives intended to support creativity, economic development and innovation (…) adversely affect research and cooperation

  15. In the second half of 2008 a programme for the development of mutually compatible and multi-dimensional mapping of seas in Member States' waters

  16. Preparatory Action Timetable MODEG 18 June 2008 – Brussels

  17. European Atlas of the Seas using available spatial information and building on the work of a European Marine Observation and Data Network, with a view to its first publication in 2009.

  18. Preliminary Maritime Policy Budget 2009 MODEG 18 June 2008 – Brussels

  19. Roadmap • Rationale for EMODNET • History of EMODNET • Data status • who collects it • who uses it • results of legal study • Design principles for EMODNET • Relationship with other initiatives • GMES, SEIS, INSPIRE, Data Collection Regulation • Timetable for moving ahead MODEG 18 June 2008 – Brussels

  20. Questions for Expert Group • Questions today • what should priorities be for 2009 budget? • what are our data communities? • What should Atlas of Seas look like? • What should be covered in EU programme for seabed mapping? • Work during summer • review legal study • contribute to roadmap chapter on data status • suggest themes for European Atlas of Seas?
