Pre-defined Projects
 
Pre-defined project 1 (PDP1)
Acquisition and fitting of a Dynamic Positioning (DP) Vessel equipped with marine surveying equipment
 
The purpose of the pre-defined project is to acquire a second-hand Dynamic Positioning (DP) research vessel in order to increase the capacity in Portugal to perform multidisciplinary marine research in the Atlantic Ocean from the coastal areas to deep-sea regions. The vessel will have two main operating modes: fisheries research and ROV-operations for environmental research (oceanography, geology, biology, hydrography etc).
 
» Project Promoter: The Portuguese Sea and Atmosphere Institute (IPMA)

» Project partner: The Institute of Marine Research (Norway)

» Programme grant contribution: €11,000,000

» % of EEA grant: 85%

» Estimated total project cost: €12,941,176

» Expected outcome: Improved monitoring of marine waters
 
 
Pre-defined project 2 (PDP2)
Preparation of integrated geographic information for marine and coastal water management

The purpose of the pre-defined project is to develop a Marine Spatial Data Infrastructure (MSDI) database. The database will collate and harmonise marine data currently spread over a number of public and research institutions in Portugal while at the same time connect the data to geographical information. It will also ensure better coordination and information sharing between all relevant public and scientific institutions.
 
The MSDI will integrate technology, methodology and scientific standards with policy issues and serve as a basis for decision-making. In particular this is linked to the project promoter’s mandate to “maintain and update the database structure to support the extension of the continental shelf project, creating the basis foundation for the national system of monitoring and management of the ocean”.

The pre-defined project 2 will contribute towards fulfilment of the outcome “Increased capacity for assessing and predicting environmental status in marine waters”, but will also contribute towards more integrated marine management and improved monitoring in Portugal in a longer perspective.
» Project promoter: The Portuguese Task-group for the extension of the continental shelf (EMEPC)

» Project partners: The Norwegian Mapping Authority and National Land Survey of Iceland, The Portuguese Sea and Atmosphere Institute (IPMA)

» Programme grant contribution: €2,000,000

» % of EEA grant: 85%

» Estimated total project cost: €2,352,941

» Expected outcome: Increased capacity for assessing and predicting environmental status in marine water
