Current Joint Actions
In an unprecedented collaboration, the three JPIs on Water, Oceans and Antimicrobial Resistance, together with European Commission aim to tackle one of the most pressing issues facing society – the presence of pollutants and pathogens in water resources.
The Joint Action on Blue Carbon addresses blue carbon as a measure for climate mitigation by providing spatial knowledge products to support carbon removal action and policy.
Climate Science for Oceans
In a joint effort with JPI Climate, this action aims to fund research on ocean-climate interactions, to improve climate models and inform climate change adaptation policies in Europe.
Cumulative Effects of Human Activities
In the Cumulative Effects of Human Activities Knowledge Hub the experts will develop guidelines and common principles for decision makers on how to assess cumulative effects of human activities.
Ecological Aspects of Microplastics
The Joint Action Ecological Aspects of Microplastics was launched as one of JPI Oceans’ pilot activities, to study the sources, distribution and impact of microplastics in the marine environment.
Ocean Carbon Capacities
The JPI Oceans Knowledge Hub Ocean Carbon Capacities will address and reduce uncertainties in the understanding of the ocean’s buffering and carbon storage capacities.
Science for Good Environmental Status
The Knowledge Hub constitutes a multi-national expert group that coordinates research and innovation to enable countries to assess and achieve Good Environmental Status.
Sea Level Rise
The Knowledge Hub on Sea Level Rise is a networking platform promoting the generation, synthesis, exchange and integration of knowledge on local, regional and global, historic and future sea level rise.
Transdisciplinary Research for Ocean Sustainability
For this Joint Action, the Belmont Forum, JPI Oceans and Future Earth have joined forces for this Collaborative Research Action (CRA) on Transdisciplinary Research for Ocean Sustainability.
Past Joint Actions
Integrated Assessment of New Pollutants
The Knowledge Hub on integrated assessment of new pollutants was a network consisting of selected experts from JPI Oceans member countries.
Intercalibration for Water Framework Directive
The scientific intercalibration exercise for the EU Water Framework Directive (WFD) brought together scientific experts to perform required analyses in the most cost-efficient way.
MarTERA - ERA-NET Cofund on Marine Technologies
MarTERA is an ERA-NET Cofund scheme of Horizon 2020 with an overall goal to strengthen the European Research Area (ERA) in maritime and marine technologies as well as Blue Growth.
