- European Tracking Network (ETN) data
- Description in English
- Telemetry is a commonly applied method to investigate the ecology and movement behaviour of aquatic species in relation to their environment. It provides a scientific basis for management and conservation and has significantly improved our understanding of ecosystem functioning and dynamics. More specifically telemetry provides valuable data that can be used in many policies and directives.
The European Tracking Network is a pan-European biotelemetry network that aims at the integration of regional telemetry initiatives into a sustainable, efficient and integrated network embedded in the international context.
ETN will focus on:
1) Implementing a centralised European database with requirements and policy mapped
to the data standards of existing international biotelemetry data systems
2) Improving the usefulness and inter-applicability of currently available technology and foster technological advancements.
3) Promoting the establishment of key telemetry infrastructure and research on key species.
4) Providing technical training and disseminate knowledge to (early career) researchers
- Abstract in English
