JPI Oceans has been assessed as mature by the European Commission

After two week internal assessment of JPI “Healthy and Productive Seas and Oceans” the European Commission has concluded that, based on the input we have provided, JPI Oceans is mature.

The European Commission, by Head of Unit Liam Breslin, has today informed us that:  On the basis of the information you provided us on 20 April, the Commission has completed the assessment the maturity of the Joint Programming Initiative "Healthy and Productive Seas and Oceans" (JPI Oceans). I am pleased to inform you that it is considered mature. We will therefore start the preparation of a recommendation to the Council and Parliament on this JPI, with a view to get it adopted by the Commission in the third quarter of 2011, which means no later than the end of September 2011.I congratulate you for the efforts undertaken in past months to build-up the JPI Oceans and I look forward to our continued cooperation on that matter."

We have reached an important milestone. This is however not the end, but the beginning of a long voyage to solve the grand challenges of this JPI. The Members States and Associated Countries have worked hard during the past year and it has been awarded. This is a good day for marine and maritime research in Europe.
