EU Director General supports JPI Oceans

The Joint Programming Initiative Healthy and Productive Seas Oceans is an impressive initiative according to Robert-Jan Smits, Director General of Research and Innovation in the European Commission.

Mr. Smits made this statement during a high-level conference on research in Oslo last month which was hosted by Tora Aasland, the Norwegian Minister of Science and Education. During his intervention on “Realising the 2020 Strategy by investing in Research and Innovation” Robert-Jan Smits also said that he would support the JPI Oceans under the next Framework Programme.

The European Commission who has already assessed JPI Oceans as mature will participate as well as a non-voting member in the JPI’s Management Board.
