Regional interactions through EuroMarine activities - 2014-2017

As part of an overall 2014-2017 reporting exercise, the networking effect of the 63 scientific activities funded by EuroMarine on its 2014-17 budget has been assessed, based on the list of individual participants in these activities.

The below plots represent interactions between the whole set of EuroMarine organisations (regardless of their regional location) and non-member organisations grouped by world regions.

The EuroMarine node corresponds to the 70 organisations that (a) had a full member or permanent invited member status over the period considered (i.e., all members but four European research organisations that only had a transitional invited member status), and (b) participated in at least one activity (i.e., all full or permanent invited members but a Turkish, invited member university).

The world region nodes correspond overall to 495 organisations in 64 countries.

Remarkably, the graph is fully connected (each node is connected to all other nodes), meaning that scientists from any region pair jointly participated in at least one activity.

The first plot represents all pairwise interactions. For each group (EuroMarine or world region), the group label specifies:

  • the number of distinct organisations (O) having participated in EuroMarine activities;
  • the number of activities (A) organisations from the group participated in;
  • the number of individual participations (P) from that group in EuroMarine activities (summed over organisations and activities); and
  • the number of individual interactions (I) between scientists from the group and scientists from all the other groups, made possible by their joint participation in EuroMarine activities.

The following plots represent pairwise interactions separately for each of the 14 nodes.

The number of organisations that participated in EuroMarine activities in each group determines the area of the vertex circle representing that group. The number of (potential) individual interactions between scientists of two different groups, summed over all activities they jointly participated in, determines the thickness and shade of the edge connecting these two organisations.
