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?
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.
