progetto MINKE

Programme: H2020 – Research and Innovation Actions

Project title: Metrology for Integrated Marine Management and Knowledge-Transfer Network

Acronym: MINKE

Duration: 2021 - 2025

Total Budget: € 4.994.955

ISMAR budget: € 77.336

Web site: n.a.


MINKE will integrate key European marine metrology research infrastructures, to coordinate their use and development and propose an innovative framework of “quality of oceanographic data” for the different European actors in charge of monitoring and managing the marine ecosystems. MINKE proposes a new vision in the design of marine monitoring networks considering two dimensions of data quality, accuracy and completeness, as the driving components of the quality in data acquisition. The present proposal, through the different Integration Activities (Networking, Transnational-Virtual Access and Joint Research), aims to lay the groundwork for creating the necessary synergies among the different involved actors in the quintuple helix model of innovation, creating a new community with complementary capabilities for Ocean & Coastal Observation, that will facilitate the transition towards a blue growth socio-economic system.
