Share your ideas for new Joint Actions


  • 14 June 2022

Do you want to inspire the international research agenda in the marine and maritime domain with your ideas for a new pan-European Joint Action? We now offer interested stakeholders the opportunity to bring new ideas to the attention of our member countries.

Opportunity to bring new ideas to the table

JPI Oceans is an intergovernmental organization where member countries join forces and support research & innovation (R&I) activities for healthy and productive seas and oceans. We support a variety of ocean-related research themes by bringing together expert groups (Knowledge Hubs), pooling funds for research projects (Joint Calls), or connecting existing projects, infrastructures, and networks.

Each year we can explore 1-2 new topics for adoption as a Joint Action. We now offer interested stakeholders to bring new ideas to the attention of our member countries. Which ocean related topics do you propose should be explored through trans-national R&I? Do you have ideas how a related Joint Action could be implemented? Where can JPI Oceans add value and complementarity to existing R&I efforts?

Ideas for new JPI Oceans Joint Actions should fall under the thematic scope of the JPI Oceans Strategy Framework 2021-2025 and should be a novel contribution to our portfolio of activities.

For an idea to be developed further by JPI Oceans, at least one of our member countries needs to be willing to lead the further scoping and later implementation, at least four of the member countries need to approve and support the activity, and JPI Oceans needs to have the necessary management resources.
