ERIC Committee positive decision on step 2 of EMSO

ERIC Committee positive decision on step 2 of EMSO

On January 21st the ERIC (European Research Infrastructure Consortium) Committee approved the Step 2 of EMSO’s application process to the ERIC. One more leap towards the set up of EMSO-ERIC.

The positive opinion by the ERIC Committee will give the European Commission the green light to publish the EMSO Statutes in the Official Journal of the European Union, final step of the approval process.

Full members of EMSO-ERIC, at this time, are: France, Greece, Italy and the UK. Other countries are undergoing internal procedures to join as full members: Ireland, Portugal, Romania, Spain, and as observer: The Netherlands.

Joint Research Unit (JRU) EMSO Italy: The heads of Italy’s research institutions and universities met in Rome, to ratify the establishment of the JRU

Joint Research Unit (JRU) EMSO Italy: The heads of Italy’s research institutions and universities met in Rome, to ratify the establishment of the JRU

The heads of Italy’s research institutions (INGV, CNR, INFN, SZN, OGS, ISPRA, ENEA, CONISMA) met on Jan 20th, 2016 at the headquarters of Italy’s National Institute of Geophysics and Volcanology (INGV) in Rome, to ratify the establishment of the Joint Research Unit (JRU) EMSO Italy.

 

The JRU EMSO Italy is a coordination structure which brings together Italian research institutions and universities who will pool human resources and equipment to monitor European seas. The objective is to provide Italian and European marine scientists with technologically advanced infrastructures in order to study long-term time series of data about the European marine environment and for detecting natural and man-induced changes and hazards related to climate and biodiversity.

 

The JRU is an unprecedented commitment by major Italian research institutions and universities to join forces in the field of marine sciences and it will allow Italy to maintain a leading role in the European Research Infrastructure EMSO.

France joins EMSO as full member

France joins EMSO as full member

The French government has sent the formal request to join EMSO as a full member, committing for a period of 5 years following the establishment of the ERIC.
The letter was signed by Roger Genet, General Director of the Ministere de l'Education Nationale, l'Inseignement Superieur et de la Recherce, who requested the Italian Minister of Education, Mrs Stefania Giannini, to ask the European Commission to set up the European Multidisciplinary Seafloor and water-column Observatory as a European Research Infrastructure Consortium.
This brings the number of full member countries of EMSO to four: Italy, Greece, UK and France.

AGU Fall meeting. San Francisco, 14-18 December 2015. EMSO will have a booth at the largest Earth and space science meeting in the world.

AGU Fall meeting. San Francisco, 14-18 December 2015. EMSO will have a booth at the largest Earth and space science meeting in the world.

The American Geophysical Union (AGU) Fall Meeting is the largest Earth and space science meeting in the world. The meeting will be held at the Moscone Center North Building - Hall D and EMSO will be at booth no. 1042.

Now in its 48th year, the AGU Fall Meeting is the best place to present your research, hear about the latest discoveries, trends, and challenges engaged audiencein the field, and network and make connections that can enhance your career.

The AGU Fall Meeting brings together the entire Earth and space sciences community for discussions of emerging trends and the latest research. The technical program includes presentations on new and cutting-edgeAmerican Geophysical Union - Fall Meting 2012 science, much of which has not yet been published, meaning you’ll return to work with knowledge you can’t get anywhere else.

More than 95% of past attendees say their AGU Fall Meeting experience was worthwhile. Why? Attendees say it’s the best place to gain insights and updates on the latest scientific research and network with both luminaries and up-and-coming talent across disciplines.

With more than 1700 sessions, the AGU Fall Meeting’s scientific program spans the Earth and space sciences, offering something for everyone no matter their scientific discipline. The meeting offers a unique mix of more than 23,000 oral and poster presentations, a broad range of general sessions, more than 50 formal and informal networking and career advancement opportunities, and an exhibit hall packed with nearly 300 exhibitors showcasing new and relevant research tools and services that could help scientists and researchers streamline their work.

EMSODEV KICKOFF 22-23 September 2015 in Heraklion, Crete

EMSODEV KICKOFF 22-23 September 2015 in Heraklion, Crete
EMSODEV (European Multidisciplinary Seafloor and water-column Observatory DEVelopment) is a project aimed at catalyzing the full implementation and operation of EMSO distributed Research Infrastructure (RI), through the development, testing and deployment of an EMSO Generic Instrument Module (EGIM). This module will ensure accurate, consistent, comparable, regional-scale, long-term measurements of ocean parameters, which are key to addressing urgent socio-scientific challenges such as climate change, ocean ecosystem disturbance and marine hazards. The result will be the increased interoperability of EMSO nodes thanks to the harmonized collection of ocean essential variable time series.
In addition, EGIM will also greatly help optimize the investments and operational efficiency of the EMSO research infrastructure thus improving the RI's effectiveness and its attractiveness for member states and users, including industry.
