Marine Board Autumn Plenary meeting

JPI Oceans was invited to take part to the Marine Board Autumn plenary meeting held in Madrid on 13-14 October. This meeting gathered the main national organisations involved in marine scientific research including research funding organisations, research performing organisations and large university consortia. Kathrine Angell-Hansen, director of JPI oceans secretariat, gave a presentation highlighting potential areas of synergies between JPI Oceans and the Marine Board respective activities.

The Marine Board provides a pan-European platform for its member organisations to develop common priorities, to advance marine research and to bridge the gap between science and policy, in order to meet future marine science challenges and opportunities. Marine Board Delegates meet at Plenary Meetings twice a year to share knowledge, to define common priorities and to agree on activities and outputs which will drive or impact upon European and national marine research and policy agendas.

Among its activities, the Marine Board delivers analysis and foresights on marine scientific topics of strategic importance, providing high-level recommendations to marine research community, policy makers and wider marine and maritime stakeholders. For example, the Marine biotechnology report identifies the priorities for further research in this field and formulate recommendations for future policies and critical support mechanisms.

Marine Board reports, visions and position papers such as Navigating the Future already play an important role in providing valuable input to JPI Oceans strategic documents. JPI Oceans’s objective is indeed to build on relevant input from organisations like the Marine Board in designing its long-term vision and future activities. “We look forward to continued strategic discussions and fruitful cooperation also in the future”, said Kathrine Angell-Hansen.
