We will deliver a strategic foresight paper [D10.11] on the contribution of AtlantOS towards an EOOS. The paper will build on work achieved in AtlantOS to inform the European research agenda and drive forward ocean observation as a priority area for the Transatlantic Ocean Research Alliance agreed by the EU, USA and Canada. The aim is to further develop the vision for an integrated and sustained ocean observing system as articulated in the publications of the European Marine Board, including the strategic foresight paper Navigating the Future IV (European Marine Board, 2013) and the joint EMB and EuroGOOS publication (2008) EMODnet: A vision for an end-to-end, integrated, inter-operable and user-oriented network of European marine observation and data systems.
