The EU-funded AtlantECO project aims to develop and apply a novel, unifying framework that provides knowledge-based resources for a better understanding and management of the Atlantic Ocean and its ecosystem services.
AtlantECO will engage with citizens and actors from the industry and policy sectors in order to stimulate responsible behaviour and Blue Growth. The project focuses on three pillars of research: microbiomes, plastic and the plastisphere, and seascape connectivity. In pursuit of this goal, AtlantECO is bringing together experts and pioneers from Europe, South America and South Africa with the relevant resources, knowledge and experience.
Plankton Planet's mission is to harness the curiosity and creativity of sailors and scientists to sample ocean plankton at unprecedented scales, for in-depth evaluation of ocean health, biodiversity, & evolution.We are a complementary team of committed researchers, engineers, and sailors from the US, France and New Zealand who believe that improving our knowledge and understanding of ocean life is critical for the sustainability of humanity on the blue planet.
‘Plankton Planet’ is an international non-profit organization that works in close collaboration with the Tara Foundation (France & USA) which runs the scientific expeditions of the famous schooner Tara.
