The EMODnet Data Ingestion portal activities are undertaken by a European network of 46 organisations from 29 coastal countries, including 1 international organisation. Geographically the network has nodes in the countries around all European marine basins and it covers all EMODnet data themes. Most partners are data centres and are qualified as National Oceanographic Data Centres (NODC), National Geological Surveys, Biology Institutes, or as National Hydrographic Agencies. Moreover the consortium includes the coordinators of the EMODnet thematic data portals through which also those networks are involved.

The table below gives an overview of the partnership in alphabetic order. By clicking on the names in the list you can call up more details of each partner from the European Directory of Marine Organisations (EDMO), managed by the SeaDataNet network.

These data centres are highly skilled and have been actively engaged in data management for many decades and have the essential capabilities and facilities for data quality control, long term stewardship, retrieval and distribution. They are actively involved in national research and monitoring activities and have established arrangements for managing the resulting data on a national and thematic basis. Moreover the data centres work together on a pan-European and international scales in organisations such as IODE, ICES, EuroGeoSurveys, EuroGOOS, and IHO, and for pan-European marine data management infrastructures such as SeaDataNet and EurOBIS. The latter are feeding into several EMODnet thematic portals
