28 Nov 2022 - 01 Dec 2022

Between 28 November and 1 December 2022, Patricia Martin-Cabrera and Lennert Schepers from MISSION ATLANTIC's data management team participated in All-Atlantic Data 2030 Stakeholders Workshop - Towards a Sustainable Competence Centre for Marine and Coastal Data of the Global South in Argentina.

Hosted by the All-Atlantic Cooperation for Ocean Research and Innovation (AANChOR‑CSA) Project, the event brought together 25 participants from 10 countries to share their experiences and to discuss the data needs and gaps in the South Atlantic at a local, regional and national level.

FAIR, CARE, and TRUST principles were discussed in detail as well as best practices and considerations for including them in Atlantic research. The three main outcomes of the event were: (1) The Roadmap for the All Atlantic Ocean Data Space, first presented in BrasĂ­lia, in June 2022, which was revised; (2) the definition of a set of actions that will be integrated into the roadmap and (3) the first draft of the white paper that summarizes the recommendations for governments of countries of the South Atlantic, enabling them to address critical issues arising from the need of sharing scientific data.

The MISSION ATLANTIC metadata catalog was presented and we are very happy that this can be shared with other Atlantic initiatives, such as AANChOR.
