Under the EU’s Destination Earth Initiative in line with its Green Deal and Digital Package, the EU’s next step is to develop a Digital Twin Ocean.

Building on the integration of existing EU leading-edge capacities in ocean observation, data infrastructures and modelling and forecasting services using innovative IT technology, this initiative will develop a digital, high-resolution, multi-dimensional and near real-time representation of the global ocean. Different users, from scientists and policy makers to businesses and NGOs, will be able to use this digital platform and its tools, fed by their own data, to transform ocean data and create their own scenarios and solutions for the ocean and further advance their ocean knowledge.

More on this initiative coming soon.
