Actions in planning

The actions listed below have been adopted by the Management Board and are currently being further scoped.

Joint Actions are initiated to implement the Strategic Research and Innovation Agenda of JPI Oceans. The size and scope of each action will vary depending on the research needs and the method used will depend upon the objective. To initiate an action, one member country must take the lead and be supported by at least three others. Countries may choose to fund new research or to participate through funding the coordination costs, use of infrastructure or creating open access to data or other forms of contributions considered useful in the joint action.

Cumulative effects of anthropogenic disturbances

The JPI Oceans Strategic Research and Innovation Agenda recognized the need to improve the current knowledge to identify environmental sensitivities to cumulative effects of human pressures over longer timeframes, at all levels of ecosystem organisation and geographic scales, and to improve tools for assessment. So far, nine countries are supporting this action with the Norway as lead country. A first workshop was conducted in Utrecht (Netherlands) on 24 and 25 April 2017 with the objective to draw up a roadmap. The first draft, including activities and type of tools, was drafted and presented at the Management Board meeting in Lisbon in October 2017. A second workshop will be held online in October 2020 and a re-evaluated draft will be presented to the Management Bard in November 2020.

Underwater noise in the marine environment 

With the endorsement of the Management Board agreed in 2018, two scoping workshops were held in Brussels (January 2019, with support of the CSA Oceans 2) and in Rome (January 2020). The workshops addressed the prospects for JPI Oceans to promote a pan-European cross-disciplinary partnership for the integration of different sectors of the scientific research community with a focus on the impact of anthropogenic noise on the marine environment. The overarching goal of the partnership is to decrease the high level of uncertainty about the impact of noise through promotion of specific lines of scientific research which, contribute also to the implementation of the Marine Strategy Framework Directive at regional sub-basin scale. The Joint Action was confirmed at the Management Board meeting of JPI Oceans in May 2020.
