ATLAS Deliverable 8.2 - 18-month progress report on ATLAS data integration in EMODnet


A novelty in Horizon 2020 is the Open Research Data Pilot which aims to improve and maximise access to and re-use of research data generated by projects. ATLAS will generate diverse research outputs, including data, software and scientific articles about physical oceanography, biogeochemistry, visual surveys of biodiversity, biological rates and traits measurements, genomic analyses, socio-economic metrics, and spatial planning. This diversity requires an ambitious data management plan (DMP), building on existing open science resources that are interoperable and trusted. UniHB has a key role in the implementation of ATLAS’ DMP, acting as a facilitator between ATLAS partners and six open science resources:

  • ENA, the European Nucleotides Archive (
  • PANGAEA, Data Publisher for Earth and Environmental Science (
  • EuBI, Euro-BioImaging (
  • ZENODO, EU-funded open access digital repository (
  • OpenAIRE, H2020’s research monitoring infrastructure (
  • EMODnet, the European Marine Observation and Data Network (

Ultimately, ATLAS research data will be transferred to EMODnet using the interoperability protocols specified by the different EMODnet thematic nodes (e.g. bathymetry, chemistry and biology). The present deliverable reports on the progress of this transfer process (Task 8.5), but more generally, it provides the overall progress of tasks leading to the integration of ATLAS data in EMODnet.
