emeco the vision

Background

EMECO – The Vision

EMECO’s vision is to integrate monitoring, modelling and research to gain knowledge and support of Europe’s need for an ecosystem approach. It will strive to meet this challenge by bringing together the wide range of data required from physics to fish at regional scales and create and disseminate the new knowledge it will acquire.

eu research infrastructure call
EU Research Infrastructure call
  • The overall objective of the Research Infrastructures part of the 'Capacities' specific programme is to optimise the use and development of the best research infrastructures existing in Europe, and to help to create in all fields of science and technology new research infrastructures of pan-European interest needed by the European scientific community to remain at the forefront of the advancement of research, and able to help industry to strengthen its base of knowledge and its technological know how.
  • Context - Research infrastructures play an increasing role in the advancement of knowledge and technology and their exploitation. For example, radiation sources, data banks in genomics and data banks in social science, observatories for environmental sciences, …..
