ANERIS Kick-Off Meeting

ANERIS Kick-off Meeting

Barcelona, Spain, 8–9 March 2023.

LifeWatch ERIC is partnering in the new Horizon Europe project, ANERIS (operAtional seNsing lifE technologies for maRIne ecosystemS). The project proposes to develop the next generation of scientific instrumentation tools and methods for sensing marine-life. The design of the new instruments and methods will integrate different types of marine life-sensing technologies: genomics, imaging-biooptics and participatory sciences. The technologies will be implemented in a co-design framework, involving all the interested stakeholders: academia, industry, civil society and government. 

The project proposes the concept of Operational Marine Biology (OMB), understood as a biodiversity information system for systematic and long-term routine measurements of the ocean and coastal life, and their rapid interpretation and dissemination. The production of FAIR Operational Marine Biology data will be carried out in a distributed IT infrastructure built from edge and cloud compute nodes, to be connected with the European Open Science Cloud (EOSC). 

The ANERIS Kick-Off Meeting will last two days and will take place at the Instituto de Ciencias del Mar del Consejo Superior de Investigaciones Científicas, ICM-CSIC, Passeig Marítim de la Barceloneta 37-49, 08003 Barcelona.
