Marine research is playing a crucial role in wider efforts to preserve and support ocean sustainability. Innovative technology such as Blue Cloud offers us unique opportunities to understand, exploit and protect the ocean environment. The rise of the 'Blue Economy' concept needs to be accompanied by new technological applications for more effective marine research that will support efforts to minimise environmental risks and ecological catastrophes. The EU-funded Blue Cloud project proposes a practical approach to understand the potential that cloud-based open science offers to the research of the ocean. The project will develop a pilot cyber platform to collect and elaborate multidisciplinary data and provide analytical instruments as well as computing facilities.
