Are there any reasons why there should be exceptions, to the Commission’s policy of making marine data freely available and interoperable? private sector civil society • endangered species • valuable wrecks • movement of ships • publishing rights • legal responsibility • income for trading funds • "incorrect interpretation" public bodies researchers

  4. Are the seven thematic groups of the European Marine Observation and Data Network the most appropriate? Should some be combined? (e.g. geology and hydrography) or should some be divided? private sector civil society • need to ensure that the groups meet regularly to avoid divergence • provide a portal giving access to data and data products from all groups was emphasised. public bodies researchers

  5. What should be the balance in EMODnet between providing access to raw data and developing digital map layers derived from the raw data across seabasins? civil society private sector • need to leave room for the private sector • raw data provides reassurance of quality • depends on complexity public bodies researchers

  6. Should a common platform be set up to deliver products from both GMES and EMODnet? civil society private sector • One-stop shop • One-step at a time public bodies researchers

  7. Should an internet portal similar to those for EMODnet be set up to provide access to fisheries data held by Member States, civil society private sector • build on efforts by JRC or ICES • fish are a public resource public bodies researchers

  8. Should there be an obligation for research projects to include a provision ensuring the archiving and access to observations collected during the research project? civil society private sector • nearly unanimous • not necessarily a legal obligation public bodies researchers

  9. Should the ‘push’ process whereby marine environment reports are delivered be progressively replaced by a ‘pull’ process? civil society private sector • good long-term aim • efficiency and speed • who vouches for accuracy? public bodies researchers

  10. How could the governance of EMODnet and GMES evolve to better accommodate the need for long term sustainability? • Need stable funding • Not closed to new entrants • Governance board including private companies

  11. Is a regular process needed to evaluate the effectiveness of the observation and sampling strategy for each sea-basin? civil society private sector • Incorporate OSPAR and HELCOM, • regional hydrographic organisations • Contribute to adaptive management public bodies researchers

  12. What mechanism could be envisaged to manage the evaluation and assessments needed to inform the Commission, Member States and Parliament on priorities for EU support? • External expertise and permanent committee • Academia, Public Bodies and Commercial Organisations with clear targets and metrics • Marine Strategy Framework Directive can help

Should licensedoffshore private sector actors be obliged to contribute to wider monitoring of the sea where this is feasible? civil society private sector • the industry (..) remains positive (..) if sampling from existing structures can help realising that and if it does not interfere with the function and operation of the structures public bodies researchers

  15. What public-private partnership models can maximise incentives for industry to share data and investments in data as well as benefits to all stakeholders? • Already happening in UK and Netherlands • Need public support in early phases • Hydrographic organisations defensive

  16. Next Steps • impact assessment • how to • provide a more effective process for helping Member States fix priorities for surveying, observation and processing; • further improve coordination between the different EU instruments concerned with marine knowledge – primarily EMODnet, Copernicus and the Data Collection Framework for fisheries; • ensure better involvement of the private sector. • road map
