Ecological observing System in the Adriatic Sea: oceanographic observations for biodiversity

START DATE

01.01.2019

END DATE

30.06.2021

TOTAL BUDGET

€ 3.390.551,05

SPECIFIC OBJECTIVE

3.2: Contribute to protect and restore biodiversity

LEAD PARTNER

National Research Council - CNR

TARGET GROUPS

General public

Local, regional and national public authorities

Protected areas / natural heritage management bodies

Education and training organizations as well as universities and research institutes

ECOSS overall objective is the establishment of the ECOlogical observing system in the Adriatic Sea (ECOAdS), shared between Italy and Croatia, able to integrate ecological and oceanographic research and monitoring with Natura 2000 conservation strategies. Building on the facilities, infrastructures and long term ecological data existing in the Programme area and developing specific case studies, ECOSS will enhance the marine observational capacities for improving the conservation status and the expansion of the marine component of Natura 2000 network. The synergies and feedbacks among the main conservation management questions, ecological variables and key oceanographic processes will be assessed, basing on the connectivity among habitats and species in coastal and offshore waters.
