Institut Français de Recherche pour l'exploitation de la Mer

Institution

Institut Français de Recherche pour l'exploitation de la Mer (Ifremer) contributes, through its work and expertise, to the knowledge of the oceans and their resources, to the monitoring of the marine environment and the coastline and to the sustainable development of maritime activities. In order to achieve this goal, it designs and implements observational, experimental and monitoring tools and it manages oceanographic databases.

Research expertise

As an integrated research institution in the marine sciences, Ifremer, through its four scientific departments, contributes to the national research and innovation system, as well as the European Research Area.

Role in PHIDIAS

The main role of Ifremer is to highlight the needs of marine sciences in terms of marine data management and processing. For this reason, it will work on the use case about the ocean, which aims at improving the use of 1) cloud services for marine data management, 2) data services to the user in a FAIR perspective, and 3) data processing on demand. This will be done in collaboration with European colleagues who are widely experienced in ocean observation (instruments, resulting data, possible outliers) and the development of algorithms for data processing.
