Current Joint Actions
In an unprecedented collaboration, the three JPIs on Water, Oceans and Antimicrobial Resistance, together with European Commission aim to tackle one of the most pressing issues facing society – the presence of pollutants and pathogens in water resources.
The BlueBio ERA-Net Cofund is the result of a collaboration between JPI Oceans and the former ERA-NETS COFASP and ERA MBT, consisting of 30 partners from 17 countries and aims to strengthen Europe’s position in the blue bioeconomy.
The Joint Action on Blue Carbon addresses blue carbon as a measure for climate mitigation by providing spatial knowledge products to support carbon removal action and policy.
Changing Marine Lightscapes
The Joint Action on Changing Marine Lightscapes seeks to enhance knowledge and understanding of how marine lightscapes are changing through artificial light and turbidity, respectively, the drivers of change, the impacts on biodiversity and ecosystems, and how to manage these changes.
Climate Science for Oceans
In a joint effort with JPI Climate, this action aims to fund research on ocean-climate interactions, to improve climate models and inform climate change adaptation policies in Europe.
Cumulative Effects of Human Activities
In the Cumulative Effects of Human Activities Knowledge Hub the experts will develop guidelines and common principles for decision makers on how to assess cumulative effects of human activities.
Ecological Aspects of Deep-Sea Mining
The Joint Action Ecological Aspects of Deep-Sea Mining assessed the long-term impacts of polymetallic nodule mining on the deep-sea environment.
Ecological Aspects of Microplastics
The Joint Action Ecological Aspects of Microplastics was launched as one of JPI Oceans’ pilot activities, to study the sources, distribution and impact of microplastics in the marine environment.
Food and Nutrition Security
To foster transnational and multidisciplinary collaboration and networking in order to accelerate, further characterize and manage the impact of climate change on nutritional make-up of food, and to propose adaptive strategies to secure food and nutrition.
Ocean Carbon Capacities
The JPI Oceans Knowledge Hub Ocean Carbon Capacities will address and reduce uncertainties in the understanding of the ocean’s buffering and carbon storage capacities.
Science for Good Environmental Status
The Knowledge Hub constitutes a multi-national expert group that coordinates research and innovation to enable countries to assess and achieve Good Environmental Status.
Sea Level Rise
The Knowledge Hub on Sea Level Rise is a networking platform promoting the generation, synthesis, exchange and integration of knowledge on local, regional and global, historic and future sea level rise.
Transdisciplinary Research for Ocean Sustainability
For this Joint Action, the Belmont Forum, JPI Oceans and Future Earth have joined forces for this Collaborative Research Action (CRA) on Transdisciplinary Research for Ocean Sustainability.
Underwater Noise in the Marine Environment
The Joint Action Underwater Noise in the Marine Environment aims to decrease the high level of uncertainty about the impact of noise through the promotion of specific lines of scientific research.
Past Joint Actions
European Marine Sensor Calibration Network
The European Marine Sensor Calibration Network (2016 - 2021) was a JPI Oceans Joint Action that established a working group for calibration activities and strategic planning and support to European marine observatories.
Integrated Assessment of New Pollutants
The Knowledge Hub on integrated assessment of new pollutants was a network consisting of selected experts from JPI Oceans member countries.
Intercalibration for Water Framework Directive
The scientific intercalibration exercise for the EU Water Framework Directive (WFD) brought together scientific experts to perform required analyses in the most cost-efficient way.
MarTERA - ERA-NET Cofund on Marine Technologies
MarTERA is an ERA-NET Cofund scheme of Horizon 2020 with an overall goal to strengthen the European Research Area (ERA) in maritime and marine technologies as well as Blue Growth.
Multi Use of Infrastructure for Monitoring
The pilot action Multi use of Infrastructure for Monitoring in the North Sea was proposed by The Netherlands in 2012 and the intention was to develop pilot studies to test these on current monitoring activities as soon as possible.
Munition in the Sea
The Knowledge Hub on Munition in the Sea constitutes a multi-national expert group which aims to coordinate research and innovation to assess risks, define priorities and suggest intervention options concerning legacy munitions in the marine environment.
