Marine knowledge Gate 2.0


Description he Marine Knowledge Gate 2.0 (EurOcean_KG) is an innovative online repository of marine research projects and results (Knowledge Outputs) with funding from the EU and major national Research Funding and Performing Organisations (RFPOs) from 25 European coastal countries, as well as from Regional and International Agencies. EurOcean_KG Advanced Search functionalities provide easy access to the information/knowledge to a broad spectrum of interested people. Practical information on these functionalities is included in the Search Tips. Through EurOcean involvement in the FP7 Coordination and Support Action “STAGES” (Science and Technology Advancing Governance on Good Environmental Status), EurOcean_KG has been expanded to include projects from new EU Funding Programmes as well as project with national and regional funding. Additionally, it offers information on the relevance, if any, to Marine Strategy Framework Directive (Marine Directive or MSFD) research and implementation. The previous Marine Knowledge Gate 1.0 was an upgrade of the EurOcean InfoBase on European Marine Research Funded Projects (EurOcean_MaP InfoBase). Through EurOcean involvement in the FP7 Support Action “MarineTT” (European Marine Research Knowledge Transfer and Uptake of Results), EurOcean_KG included a component for information on the knowledge generated by research projects or ‘Knowledge Outputs’ (KOs). Conceptually, the system is innovative containing not only profiles of each research project, but also information about the knowledge produced by the research activity in a non-technical language. Thus, EurOcean_KG consists of two main components: Projects and Knowledge Outputs.
