Metrology for Integrated Marine Management and Knowledge-Transfer Network

The EU-funded MINKE project will integrate key European marine metrology research infrastructures to propose an innovative framework of ‘quality of oceanographic data’ for European actors monitoring and managing marine ecosystems. MINKE proposes a new vision in the design of marine monitoring networks using two dimensions of data quality, accuracy and completeness, as the driving components of quality in data acquisition. This vision will be applied in a quintuple helix model of innovation, incorporating all elements involved in the monitoring network design. MINKE will lay the groundwork for creating the necessary synergies among different actors in the quintuple helix model of innovation, creating a new community with complementary capabilities for the ocean and coastal observation to facilitate the transition towards a blue growth socio-economic system.

The Virtual Access calls are always open.
