An open stakeholder consultation on EOOS ran for six weeks during December 2016 and January 2017. Views were collected from a wide community of ocean data providers, infrastructure managers, technology developers, data users, and broader ocean observing stakeholders.
EuroGOOS and the European Marine Board are working together to promote and facilitate the EOOS framework. An EOOS Steering Group was established in 2016 and developed an EOOS Consultation Document launched at the European Parliament event on EOOS in September 2016. The stakeholder views on the EOOS Consultation Document, collected during the consultation in Dec. 2016-Jan. 2017, have fed into the EOOS strategy and implementation plan. The strategy and the implementation plan will be further discussed at the EOOS Forum on 8 March 2018 and launched at the EOOS Conference on 21-23 November.
