The INSITE Programme - Phase 2
The INSITE Programme was conceived in 2012 to produce independent science leading to a greater understanding of the influence of man-made structures on the North Sea ecosystem. At the end of 2017 the research funded under INSITE Phase 1 concluded, with papers from the research published in peer reviewed journals.
With further funding from 8 industry partners confirmed, INSITE is in the early stages of a second phase. The objectives of the programme remain the same. In addition INSITE foundation research identified the need for high quality data to describe the ecosystem in the North Sea and enhance the scientific outcomes from the research, as a result a significant element of Phase 2 will be a Data Initiative to provide more industry held data to research. This will be complemented with a continuation of the science programme and a technology programme aimed at facilitating the application of new technologies to marine data acquisition.
