The All-Atlantic Data Enterprise 2030 (AA-DATA2030) Joint Pilot Action aims at creating a one-stop, user-friendly transatlantic platform for gathering natural, social, and humanistic-scientific data: the All-Atlantic Ocean Data Space (AAODS). The All-Atlantic Data Enterprise 2030 will support transatlantic information and data sharing in the spirit of ‘open science’ and the FAIR/CARE principles. The establishment of the All-Atlantic Ocean Data Space will ensure that, in the future, all stakeholders have free access to relevant data, thus safeguarding sustainable stewardship of the Atlantic Ocean.
The main goal of the Joint Pilot Action All-Atlantic Data Enterprise 2030 (AA-Data2030) is to create a unique transatlantic data platform for natural, social, and humanistic-scientific data — the All-Atlantic Ocean Data Space — to effectively and efficiently provide peer-reviewed Atlantic Ocean data in compliance with the FAIR (Findable, Accessible, Interoperable, and Re-usable) guiding principles for scientific data management, and CARE (Collective Benefit, Authority to Control, Responsibility, and Ethics) principles for indigenous data governance.
Many decades of climate variability and ecosystem research (including the effects of emerging pollutants), polar research, and ocean observation have created a great wealth of scientific data, which now has to be harvested and stored in a coordinated, accessible, and inclusive manner. This will be achieved at the Atlantic Ocean level through the establishment of the All-Atlantic Ocean Data Space.
In the long term, the Joint Pilot Action AA-Data2030 will produce a set of recommendations and products to drastically improve the handling and the accessibility of marine data by strengthening the existing networks between the West and the East, and the South and the North of the Atlantic basin. As such, AA-Data2030 promotes a comprehensive assessment of the status of ocean-related data in the Atlantic and provides forward-looking strategic recommendations and structures for more efficient data to knowledge transfer.
Several activities planned for the short term will help achieve the goals that have been set for this Joint Pilot Action:
The Joint Pilot Action AA-Data2030 will, through a fundamental mind-set shift, contribute to the ambitions of the All-Atlantic Ocean Research Alliance by collecting data without precedent, defining common standards for data sharing, integrating intercontinental science policy and networks, and ultimately generating a fully operational online data platform for the Atlantic Ocean. More precisely, AA-Data2030 will contribute to the goals of the Alliance by:
AA-Data2030, will undoubtedly also benefit the following key common areas of interest under the All-Atlantic Ocean Research Alliance:
Led by the University of São Paulo, Brazil, AA-Data2030 includes the participation and involvement of several countries:
