There are two main target groups that will benefit directly from this action:

The marine research community that will be offered the opportunity to optimize and standardize their sampling and observation strategies, with QC and QA tools, so that the integration of data will not lead to unnecessary loss of information.

The policy and management of marine resources will benefit from the information that is optimized for integration, upscaling of analyses, and will deliver the required information for the MSFD (GES) and networks of MPAs.
