The EcoScope Platform will be a novel, modular, interdisciplinary e-tool integrating meteorological, oceanographic, biogeochemical, environmental, biological, fisheries and socio-economic datasets, into a single interface covering all European Seas. The platform will use existing datasets, databases, platforms and maps and the output of projects already…
The EcoScope Toolbox will operate as a decision-support tool for policy makers, advisory bodies and researchers. The toolbox will use a scoring system based on assessments of all ecosystem components and their drivers including habitats, species distributions, fisheries and environmental forcing, climate change, fisheries reference points, conservation status of…
The knowledge created in the EcoScope Toolbox and EcoScope Platform, as well as the scientific output of the EcoScope project will be shared through capacity building in the EcoScope Academy, which will promote cross community education and knowledge sharing. The EcoScope Academy will hold a series of online courses, webinars and serious gaming to build…
The project will also develop the EcoScope App, a mobile phone application for enhancing the engagement of the public in fisheries management within the ecosystem context. The EcoScope App will be a smartphone application which will enable citizens to report on marine hazards, illegal fishing practices, removal or stranding of protected species, marine litter…
The project addresses ecosystem degradation and anthropogenic negative impact on fisheries in European seas. It aims to help restore the sustainability of fisheries and ensure food security and healthy seas balance.
Two exciting job opportunities for a Post-Doctoral Researcher and a Ph.D student to join the EcoScope Team at Aristotle University of Thessaloniki (AUTH), Thessaloniki, Greece.
This workshop will bring together *policy makers* and *stakeholders* that will use the **EcoScope e-tools** as well as experts from the EcoScope consortium that will develop these tools. The aim of the workshop is to shape the ongoing design and elaboration of the tools and their outputs with the workshop participants, so that the tools can deliver what is required by policy makers and other end-users to implement an ecosystem-based approach to fisheries.
