Origin and purpose
The EUR-OCEANS Knowledge Transfer contacts database contains the details of a selection of organisations from across the world that have an interest in the specific activities and outputs of the EUR-OCEANS scientific community.
It was originally developed by the EUR-OCEANS Network of Excellence (2005-2008). It has since been taken up, expanded and updated by the MEECE project, whose topic strongly overlaps with that of the former EUR-OCEANS Network of Excellence.
Access the database
The merging of this database with similar ones often produced within the context of other marine science networks or projects, to develop a web service and/or common database and portal will be proposed within the EuroMarine coordination and support action which gathers the MGE, MarBEF and EUR-OCEANS networks.
Such a project would let new projects rely, for their own needs/websites, on this common database, which they would be able to maintain and customize as required. It would thus avoid a wasteful duplication of efforts in future projects that would otherwise tend to develop their own separate (yet strongly overlapping) databases.
