The Baltic Data Flows project seeks to enhance the sharing and harmonisation of data on the marine environment originating from existing sea monitoring programmes, and to move towards service-based data sharing. In particular, open datasets on the Baltic Sea marine environment will be made available by HELCOM to a wider community such as researchers, NGOs, the private sector and the European open data ecosystem.
The Baltic Data Flows project features eight activities:
- National data
- Data sharing platforms
- Data harvesting
- New datatypes
- Data for hazardous substances assessment
- Data for biodiversity assessment
- Dissemination and impact assessment
- Project management
Baltic Data Flows has seven project partners:
- HELCOM (lead)
- Spatineo inc.
- Stockholm University
The Baltic Data Flows project is led by HELCOM and co-financed by the Connecting Europe Facility of the European Union.
