BigDataOcean is a H2020 funded projects which aims to capitalise on existing modern technological breakthroughs in the areas of the big data driven economy, and roll out a completely new value chain of interrelated data streams coming from diverse sectors and languages and residing on cross technology innovations being delivered in different formats (as well in different states, e.g. structured/unstructured, real-time/batches) in order to revolutionise the way maritime-related industries work, showcasing a huge and realistic economic, societal and environmental impact that is being achieved by introducing an economy of knowledge into a traditional sector which does not operate in an orchestrated manner and is rather fragmented.

This infrastructure will be combined with four strong pilots that will bring into BigDataOcean a huge amount of data (in TBs) in order to develop the largest maritime database as a resource of collaborative, datadriven intelligence. BigDataOcean will give participants the capability to upload both private and public resources of data, and interrelate them over public and private queries and diagrams.

The main contribution of R&D Nester in this project is related to the deployment of a pilot entitled: Wave power as the next clean energy source. This pilot aims to improve the characterization of the ocean as a possible source of energy through the exploitation of wave power.

This project has received funding from the European Union's Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme under grant agreement No 732310
