Aligning, integrating and promoting Europe’s ocean observing capacity
What is EOOS

EOOS is a coordinating framework designed to align and integrate Europe’s ocean observing capacity, promote a systematic and collaborative approach to collecting information on the state and variability of our seas, and underpin sustainable management of the marine environment and its resources.


An open stakeholder consultation collected views from a wide community of ocean data providers, infrastructure managers, technology developers, data users, and broad ocean observing stakeholders. The consultation ran for 6 weeks; it is now closed.
