Stress testing the EU monitoring capacity for the Blue economy

Nadia Pinardi University of Bologna, Italy

In 2013, the EU started an assessment framework called “EMODnet Checkpoint” to assess how well the European marine monitoring system meets the requirements of a sustainable "blue economy”. Checkpoints should develop an assessment framework that considers "Use Cases" or "Challenges" to evaluate the fitness for use of input monitoring data sets. The quality of the Challenge products will inform whether a monitoring data set are “fit for use”. The developed assessment framework considered: 1) a meta-database and product catalogue with information about upstream data sources and Challenge products; 2) the definition of assessment indicators for the input data sets; 3) the application of the indicators to the Challenge products and the extraction of gaps in the existing marine monitoring system from the indicator statistics.
