Project Details


A digital twin of the ocean allows experts to develop what-if scenarios, analysing the impact of measures to prevent and adapt to climate change. Integrating various data sources is key to formulating predictions of future developments in marine social-ecological systems. The EU-funded ILIAD project creates an interoperable, data-intensive, and cost-effective Digital Twin of the Ocean contributing to the implementation of the European Green Deal. It capitalises on the increasing wealth of data and advanced computing infrastructures by combining these diverse data in a semantically rich and data-agnostic approach allowing simultaneous communication with real-world systems and models. ILIAD will also create a marketplace to distribute apps, plug-ins, interfaces, raw data, citizen science data, synthesised information and value-added services.
