Black Sea scientific network

Black Sea scientific network

Objective

The Black Sea SCENE project aims to establish a Black Sea Scientific Network of leading environmental and socio-economic research institutes, universities and NGO's from the countries around the Black Sea and to develop a virtual data and information infrastructure that will be populated and maintained by these organisations to improve the identification, access, exchange, quality indication and use of their data and information about the Black Sea.

The Black Sea SCENE research infrastructure will stimulate scientific cooperation, exchange of knowledge and expertise, and strengthen the regional capacity and performance of marine environmental data & information management, underpin harmonization with European marine data quality control/assessment procedures and adoption of international meta-data standards and data-management practices, providing improved data & information delivery services for the Black Sea region at a European level. Black Sea SCENE consists of 32 partners from all Black Sea countries, 5 EU member states and 1 Associated State.

Environmental and socio-economic scientists and technical specialists of the partners will meet regularly in Workshops to discuss and to formulate the specifications, to coordinate and tune the networking activities, to monitor and to evaluate the project progress, and to consider long term sustainability of the network and wider cooperation. Common Data Quality Control procedures will be explored and harmonized, whereby partners from EU member states will demonstrate EU practices.

Partners will compile overviews of their marine datasets and data acquisition activities using established European metadata formats. Partners will assess the quality of their datasets and include Data Quality indicators in the metadata. A virtual data and information infrastructure will be implemented to facilitate the access to metadata and datasets.
