Marine Research Infrastructures
A wide variety of infrastructures related to marine and maritime research activities exist or are in construction in Europe. All these infrastructures are costly to build, upgrade, maintain and operate and will benefit from the European planning approach offered by the JPI Oceans mechanism. In cooperation with EurOcean, JPI Oceans has integrated mapping efforts conducted over the last years into one single repository, gathering information on more than 785 facilities. This Marine Research Infrastructures (MRI) Database provides the first level of knowledge and characteristics for each facility, as well as the links and contact to access the further details provided by the operator. The MRI Database can also be consulted on the EurOcean website.
