Infrastructures: Shared Use and Common Procurement Strategies
The shared use of research infrastructures and sustained cost effective observing systems are issues which would benefit from the new cooperation mechanisms offered by JPI Oceans. A high political commitment and dialogue between the relevant authorities is required and JPI Oceans offers a platform for such a dialogue to develop common procurement strategies and associated business plans. These can be adapted for the optimal use of costly infrastructures, by bringing together relevant authorities, users and producers.
