3rd meeting of the JPI OCEANS Task Force

The third meeting of the task force of the joint programming initiative “Healthy and Productive Seas and Oceans” (JPI Oceans) took place in Brussels on 21 January 2011.

On the occasion of this third meeting, the task force was pleased to welcome new members, notably from Romania. Iceland also took part in this meeting as an observer with a view to join shortly the JPI. Furthermore the task force welcomed a new observer from DG Environment of the European Commission.

The members and observers of the task force took stock of the progress achieved by the “JPI Oceans”. The mapping of existing national financial resources dedicated to marine and maritime sciences, the drafting of a vision document and terms of reference of the JPI were among the deliverables discussed by the participants. The JPI Oceans is in a good path to submit its strategic documents to external contributors by mid-2011.

The evening before the meeting, the chairs of the JPI (Belgium, Spain and Norway) had invited all participants as well as members of the permanent representations to the EU to a networking dinner where the participants got the opportunity to exchange experience and information on the JPI Oceans as well as the JPI process as such.

The Task Force will continue to work on the deliverables, until its next meeting planned on 6 April 2011. Contact details of the JPI members and observers are available on this web site.
