ICAN Steering Group members Ned Dwyer, Dawn Wright, Lucy Scott and Linda Pikula demonstrated the strong commitment of ICAN to IODE at the IODE-XXIII meeting held from 17-20 March 2015 in Bruges, Belgium. This biannual meeting was attended by representatives of all IODE projects, delegates from the National Oceanographic Data Centres of IOC member countries and observer projects. The proposed ICAN work plan and budget proposal for 2016-2017 was accepted by the Committee underlining that ICAN activities are of great relevance to IODE members.
ICAN is very pleased to welcome its latest member, EurOcean (www.eurocean.org). As described by new EurOcean executive director Ned Dwyer, already of great ICAN fame: "EurOcean or the European Centre for Information in Marine Science and Technology is an independent scientific non-governmental organization of 14 leading European marine organisations whose aim is to develop information exchange and derive values added products in the field of marine sciences and technologies. It maintains databases of marine infrastructures and a database cataloguing thousands of European marine relevant projects
Again, a warm welcome to these colleagues from EurOcean, headquartered in beautiful Lisbon, Portugal!
