A range of EMFF-related MSP, Blue Growth and Biodiversity programmes require the availability of high quality marine data from a range of marine disciplines. An initial data quality management toolset has been developed to support the availability of quality assured data for MSP, MSFD, DCF, aquaculture and food safety services, licensing support or other relevant DAFM programmes. This approach now needs to be implemented and adapted for a broad set of datasets and their associated processes, to effectively implement a coordinated approach to data management and governance across scientific disciplines in the Marine Institute.
1. Up to 30 relevant data sets will be included under the IODE approved Data Management framework (systems, processes and procedures) defining how these data are managed including data storage, retention / disposal, process definition, etc.
2. Over 70% of key Marine Institute datasets have complete, metadata to describe data quality.
3. Key Marine Institute programmes generating datasets have Data Management Plans to improve procedures for data management planning, processing and delivery.
4. Marine Institute databases underpinning programme delivery will be managed and available at an appropriate level.
