Digital Twins of the Ocean
Access The European Digital Twins of the Ocean Marketplace
The Iliad consortium will develop virtual representations of the sea that will integrate earth observing, modelling and digital infrastructures to provide predictions of future developments "at sea".
+ International Partners
56 International Partners make up the Iliad project, working towards creating digital twins.
+ Research Projects
Iliad capitalises on the explosion of new data provided by many different Earth observation sources.
+ Data Products
Iliad aspires to provide interoperable, data-intensive, and cost-effective Digital Twins of the Ocean.
The Iliad marketplace provides access to digital twins of the ocean from our partners and other innovative suppliers.

ILIAD experts from Haifa University forecast jellyfish free summer
A team of researchers from the University of Haifa, which is partner in the EU-funded ILIAD Project, forecast that it is a high likelihood that this summer Israel’s shores will be almost free of jellyfish. “If you look at the past years with similar patterns, mostly 2016 and 2018, this is definitely the reasonable estimate as of this moment,” the experts noted. So far, deep into the bathing season it seems that their forecast is accurate.
