The event was organized and hosted by the GA T2 Leader Aristotle University of Thessaloniki, Greece. and had the purpose to introduce to partners forthcoming works on ASSESSMENT and RECOMMENDATION on ADVANCED HYDRO-ENVIRONMENTAL NUMERICAL TOOLS for DATA HANDLING, REAL-TIME CONTROL and FORECASTING of MARINE CONDITIONS in the BLACK SEA​. Meeting was attended by representative of all project partners. Works on this activity starts in September 2020 and will last until March 2022, when the main outcomes  - 4 ICT tools will be completed: 1) Web-based open GIS tool for implementation of modelled data by stakeholders and end-users​; 2) Operational Forecast Platform (OFP) for water quality/circulation in the Black Sea​; 3) Web-based Mobile Data Tool; codes, smartphone apps and SMS mobile services for forecast data acquisition and management, and water quality updates or alerts​; 4) Database tool of hydro-environmental monitoring and modelling output and future projections​.

TIMMOD activities at a glance

Group Activity T1

Inventory and promotion of innovative environmental monitoring technologies for assessment of fish stock and non fish living resources. This activity aims at the elaboration of an Inventory of Innovative water monitoring technologies for monitoring of chemical, physical and biological parameters, and assessment of living resources.

Group Activity T2

Assessment and recommendation on advanced hydro-environmental numerical tools for data handling, real-time control and forecasting of marine conditions in the Black Sea. The main aim is to broaden the focus of traditional data processing and numerical modelling approaches by taking into account the holistic perspective in the analysis.

Group Activity T3

Pilot demonstration project on innovative monitoring using advance methods and instruments. Selecting innovative instrumentation, data handling and numerical modelling tools that are going to be demonstrated in two sea areas/test sites in Varna and Batumi.

Group Activity T4

Innovation Strategy to improve joint monitoring, data sharing and cross border information exchange systems in compliance with Marine Strategy Framework Directive and Data Collection Framework. This activity aims to develop common Strategy for supporting the implementation of modern technological upgrade in joint environmental monitoring, in service of the cross border cooperation and data sharing systems.
