  Name: EuroArgo
  Abbreviation: EuroArgo
  Description: Euro-Argo aims at developing a European "infrastructure" for Argo to the level where the European partners have the capacity to procure and deploy about 250 floats per year, to monitor these foats and ensure all the data can be processed and delivered to users (both in real-time and delayed-mode). With a mean float lifetime of 3/4 years, such a European contribution would support approximately 1/4 of the global array and provide an additional 50 floats per year for enhanced coverage ine the European and marginal seas. The Euro-Argo project involves 15 organisations from 12 countries, including France, Germany and UK who are the 3 major European contributors to Argo. All partners wish to optimise their collective contribution to relevant EU policies, programmes and projects. The Euro-Argo ERIC (European Research Infrastructure Consortium) is the starting point of a new European contribution for the long term operation (> 10 years) of Euro-Argo.
