ESONET - The Vision

Virtual Institute of Scientific Users of Deep Sea Observatories

Workshops and conferences

ESONET and EMSO collaborate on long-term ocean observation from the Arctic to the Black Sea to better understand coupled environmental processes driven by climate change. ESONET-Vi will be a very useful structure to interact with industry through the ESONET-EMSO community, and will also link European ocean scientists and engineers with international teams in marine science. ESONET-Vi will be a way to disseminate methods, data and equipment outside Europe and to identify locations for observatories where the system installed satisfies the needs of governmental institutions, industry as well as science. ESONET-Vi will be the centre for communication between scientists, proposal for new research and exchange of personnel, dissemination of data and technology/method, as well as training and outreach.
