Our framework for pan-European cooperation: launching JPI Oceans’ new strategy


Our framework for pan-European cooperation: launching JPI Oceans’ new strategy

In an online event on 29 March, JPI Oceans will launch its Strategy Framework 2021-25, present recent developments in its Joint Actions and projects, and discuss contributions to Horizon Europe, the UN Ocean Decade and other initiatives.
Developed with JPI Oceans members and co-created with stakeholders, the new Strategy Framework provides a coherent setting for the coming years for efficient and impactful pan-European research and innovation, in support of healthy and productive seas and ocean. It builds on the previous design, vision and scope of JPI Oceans, while also directing the lens towards external European and international developments that have emerged since the adoption of JPI Oceans’ first research and innovation agenda. 
Motivated by previous successes, and capitalising on best practices, the revised strategy defines the thematic space and impact ambitions of JPI Oceans around the three priority areas for a resilient ocean: health, productivity and stewardship & governance. To initiate the move from ambition to implementation the Strategy Framework also outlines a procedure how to establish activities that contribute to our strategic goals and vision. 
Join the event and learn more about JPI Oceans’ ambitions for coming years!
