The INSITE Programme
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 Phase 1 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 existing science programme and a technology programme aimed at facilitating the application of new technologies to marine data acquisition.
