This year, the EuroGEOSS Workshop (formerly the European Projects’ Workshop and the European GEOSS Workshop), will bring together European players interested in and actively contributing to the Global Earth Observations System of Systems (GEOSS). The aim is to look for synergies among the participants and to discuss how Europe can contribute to this international effort.
EuroGOOS and the EU AtlantOS project are co-organizing the SDG 14 breakout session of the workshop, titled: “Monitoring for MSFD and FAIR data principles – how could European expertise foster the implementation of SDG 14 objectives?”.
This breakout session will discuss how ocean observing experts can link their knowledge, data, and best practices with the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), particularly with the SDG 14 targets and indicators. With support from UN Environment, an international team of semantic technology experts has developed a FAIR-compliant knowledge representation resource (an ontology) for the SDG process. Ontologies express, integrate, harmonise, and expose human knowledge on the web, allowing computers a means to ‘understand’ what in situ and remote data and information holdings are about. We will discuss how the European Marine Strategy Framework Directive links with the SDG targets and stress the importance of ethics in marine research and data management.
