Towards the integration of data for geographically dispersed organisations
iMarine offers comprehensive data management services that cater for different needs.
iMarine applications target individuals and institutions that need to run experiments using large amounts of data, e.g. data harmonization and analysis. iMarine Resources are provided for institutions that need data sets or distributed storage and computing capabilities.
iMarine Mobile Apps are designed as demos of iMarine capabilities, which you can easily install on your mobile device but not only. They offer a cool set of tools to discover information on marine species.
The iMarine Gateway is the unique access point to iMarine applications.

Ecosystem Approach for Communities of Practice
Policy development for a sustainable iMarine future
iMarine has established
two groups of experts: the iMarine Board and the Advisory Council. The Boards are
chartered with establishing datacentric governance models to ensure the sustainability
of the iMarine e-Infrastructure. Their knowledge and experience will help defining
organizational and policy recommendations with the EA-CoP (Ecosystem Approach for
Community of Practice) for a sustainable future of the e-Infrastructure.
iMarine provides a cutting-edge
e-infrastructure supporting marine and biodiversity specialist communities, unlocking
knowledge and supporting science policy decision making.
iMarine fosters a collaborative approach to open data access and interoperability.
iMarine ensures seamless access to existing resources, increasing accessibility
to rich data streams through the on-demand integration of data sets maintained by
geographically dispersed organisations.
An Ecosystem Approach to Fisheries
Richer, better quality and timely science-based knowledge related to aquatic resources will be available through the iMarine e-infrastructure to serve policy development and implementation towards goals of the Ecosystem Approach. The e-infrastructure will enable a cost-effective and facilitated retrieval, access, collaborative production and sharing of information and tools. By interconnecting all concerned actors operating in different domains around common data, information and multidisciplinary knowledge-building, it will facilitate the emergence of a more unified and effective Ecosystem Approach Community of Practice (EA-CoP).
