Second meeting of the Italy-Croatia ECOSS project

From 6th to 7th October, the second meeting of the Interreg Italy-Croatia project “ECOSS: Ecological Observing System in the Adriatic Sea: oceanographic observations for biodiversity " will be held virtually. During the meeting, participants will discuss about the main results achieved and the next planned activities for the upcoming months, the final ones, since the project will end on 30th June 2021.  ISMAR is leading the project which comprises ten partner institutions from Italy and Croatia, collaborating towards achieving the main goal of the project: the establishment of the ECOlogical observing system in the Adriatic Sea - ECOAdS.

The ECOAdS will be shared between Italy and Croatia, and is foreseen to integrate ecological and oceanographic research and monitoring with Natura 2000 conservation strategies. To achieve this goal, ECOSS will build upon existing facilities, infrastructure and long-term ecological data to create synergy between marine observation capacities and requirements for achieving and maintaining good conservation status of the marine component of the Natura 2000 sites in the Adriatic Sea.

The project started on 1st January 2019. The overall value of the project is 3.390.551,05 EUR, of which 85% is financed by the European Union through the CBC Programme Interreg Italy-Croatia.
