Lead by example by supporting the coordination of ocean observations within Europe and take a leading role in increasing their spatial and temporal resolution across the Global Ocean. Support sustained long-term capacity for ocean observation management, coordination, integration, and co-design by building on existing European coordination initiatives, e.g. EU4OceanObs and EOOS.
