The available oceanographic data may be used by public administration units such as Maritime Offices, the Ministry of the Environment, the Ministry of Maritime Economy and Inland Navigation, the Polish Naval Hydrographic Office, crisis management and rescue centers, and local governments.
group No. 2: Scientific and research units
The data provided through eCUDO.pl will be key for the environmental research and monitoring sector, and the beneficiaries will include scientific institutions, e.g. Gdańsk University of Technology, Institute of Meteorology and Water Management, National Maritime Museum, Ship Technology Center S.A., Institute of Water Engineering Polish Academy of Sciences. The data availability will also contribute to the increased scientific value of the work carried out by all partnering Institutions of the eCUDO Project.
group No. 3: Business sector (entrepreneurs)
Potential beneficiaries of data available via eCUDO.pl are water engineering companies building renewable energy systems and transmission mains, as well as dredging and maritime construction companies. The mining industry that carries out tasks related to the exploration and extraction of natural gas, crude oil, and shale gas from the bottom of the Baltic Sea is also an addressee of the data resources made available in the Project. In addition to the heavy industry sector, data can also be used by fisheries and the tourism industry.
group No. 4: NGOs
About 100,000 foundations and associations operate in Poland. A dozen percent of them declare environmental protection as one of their business segments, a similar percentage deals with scientific research. A much larger percentage of NGOs deal with tourism, sport and recreation, and support local development. Those of them that carry out their activities in coastal areas may be recipients of data shared in the Project.
group No. 5: Private individuals
The wide range of data available in the Project – from meteorological data, through ichthyologic, to geological – potentially gives almost unlimited possibilities for their use by private citizens as part of self-education, hobby, recreation, organization of time or paid work.
