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”

  • data

    • difficult to access

    • incompatible standards

    • gaps

    • unknown quality

  • adds costs to public and private operators

    • impact assessments

    • spatial planning

  • limits development of value-added sector

freedom of information

freedom of expression

reporting obligations

legal study on data access


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


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


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

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


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?
