Periodic Report microplastics projects

The periodic reports of the four microplasics projects funded within the framework of JPI Oceans have been delivered to the funding partners and JPI Oceans secretariat. The executive summaries of the reports can be downloaded below



European Marine Sensors Calibration Network

Progress

Preparatory Meeting on European Marine Calibration Network

In this preparatory meeting, the participants agreed that the first main step should be to hold a meeting alongside “Sea Tech Week” in Brest, France, with the involvement of the most important stakeholders (research community, National Metrology Institutes (NMIs), industry).  


2nd Meeting on the EMSCN (October 13 2016, Brest)

Basic outcomes: Regarding oceanographic data/measurements, although a few recognized standards are in place, no certified reference material is available. As a result, the oceanographers face great difficulties when it comes to ensuring reliable data acquisition, with inevitable consequences on the quality of the research they conduct. Therefore, one of the thrusts for this action is to ensure manufacturers follow a standard calibration procedure to ensure quality assurance and quality control of the products delivered to the field – a process that could follow the form of a certification procedure. To this end, the National Metrology Institutes can contribute by helping the oceanographers and manufacturers to establish validated metrological procedures. Three factsheets and one white paper are currently composed soto define the next concrete steps of the action.



Food and Nutrition Security

Joint JPI Workshop

It was concluded that the 3 JPIs are willing to collaborate in the field of FNS, and the creation of a working group with members of the 3 JPIs could help the definition of a shared research theme and the preparation of a common document. The successive step would be a second workshop.
It was agreed that the approach to FNS must be undertaken from a global and cross-cutting perspective, and needs to include views and involvement of all the stakeholders acting along the food chain. Some work could be also dedicated to analyse the activities performed in ERA-Nets, in order to avoid overlaps or to find synergies.

Expert Workshop

The workshop aimed to further develop the working document produced during the JPI Workshop. After this workshop, the working paper was updated and presented to the Governing Boards of the three JPIs as well as to the EC (i.e. Food 2030 and WP 2018-2020 H2020) for discussion and decision on implementation/ next steps.


Publication of Joint Paper on Food and Nutrition Security

The three JPI’s published a new paper describing the scope of a proposed joint research programme on Food and Nutrition Security: A Multi-Disciplinary Integrative Food System Approach, which was  adopted by the governing boards of FACCE-JPI, JPI Oceans and JPI HDHL. The paper sets out an approach to Work Towards an Integrated Food System Approach, from Farm to Fork, that Provides Sustainable, Resilient and Nutritional Food from Both Land and Sea.

The paper is available here.


Funders Meeting

Funders from JPIs HDHL, FACCE and OCEANS met to explore the concrete implementation of the joint action by discussing its scope, its expected impacts and the instrument to be used. It was agreed that the three JPIs should work towards developing a Knowledge Hub in the area of Food and Nutrition Security.

Review of End-users priorities

Due to the diversity and complexity of activity and stakeholders end-users priorities have been collected in order to facilitate the identification of relevant joint activities and the selection of the stakeholders to be involved.
