An overview of the highlights of last year’s actions, projects, events and communication activities.
In 2015 research cruises conducted under the framework of JPI Oceans examined the sites of deep-seabed disturbances which left prominent marks on the seafloor that are still clearly visible several decades after. These studies provide essential information about deep-sea ecosystems and the potential impact of mining activities.
That was the key question at the workshop organised by JPI Oceans at this year’s edition of the European Maritime Day in Turku.
The Ministers of Canada, France, Germany, Italy, Japan, the United Kingdom,the United States, and the European Commissioner for Research, Science and Innovation, met in Tsukuba City from 15 to 17 May 2016.
