EMODnet in the OGS video celebrating the 20th anniversary of the NODC
8 November 2022

EMODnet is one of the key initiatives supporting European research and the UN 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development mentioned in the new video from the National Oceanographic Data Centre (NODC) at OGS, the scientific coordinator of EMODnet Chemistry.

The video, entitled "Why are marine data so crucial?", celebrates the 20th anniversary of the NODC and over 40 years of work by OGS in collecting, harmonising and validating marine data and making them available in consolidated EU data infrastructures such as EMODnet Chemistry and Biology.

The promotional video was launched at the Trieste Science+Fiction Festival on 4 November to introduce the documentary film 'Into the Ice'. The film's director accompanied three pioneering glaciologists on their expeditions into the Greenland Ice Sheet to collect data on climate change.

"The National Oceanographic Data Centre made this video to raise awareness of the importance of sharing high-quality data to address the environmental crisis. We wanted to bridge the gap between science and civil society, inform and engage people in line with the principles of open science. For this reason, we worked closely with the creative studio APZmedia, which has great experience in scientific communication." Said Alessandra Giorgetti, head of NODC, at the presentation of the video.
