About the project


OCEANIDS stands for creating tools and applications driven by users. These tools focus on Climate-Informed Maritime Spatial Planning and integrated seascape management, all aiming to contribute to a resilient and inclusive Blue Economy.

The overall project objective is to develop the tools and applications that enable a more resilient and inclusive society in coastal regions via better-informed and integrated seascape management.

The central concept is to collect, harmonize, and curate existing climate data services, making data accessible, reusable, and interoperable for developing local adaptation strategies.

Scientific & Technological Objectives


Identify all key stakeholders related to the final tools and applications of OCEANIDS


Perform an in-depth gap analysis in the root causes of poor data consumption and applications uptake by regional stakeholders


Social innovation – Develop a citizen engagement framework allowing multi participatory and co-creation towards a more inclusive society


Identify the use of New Earth observation (EO) data services requirements & specifications


Climatic models, forecasting & Meteorological models curation & quantitative environmental impact assessment in coastal regions


Develop a platform for assessing the impacts and risks of climate change on key community systems, as highlighted in the Mission Implementation Plan, including multi-hazard assessment


Develop an integrated EO and spatial data platform (single-access window) for CC-related data and services for regional stakeholders


Develop a DSS towards enabling CI-MSP in coastal regions


Deploy the OCEANIDS tools, modules, applications, and platforms on operational infrastructure in a modular, re-usable and user-friendly way


Ensure project results replication in other regions, dissemination of result to a wide audience and sustainability of the approach in real-life conditions


Liaising with other EU projects & initiatives & lessons learned
