Work Package 1 will provide effective management of the consortium and its activities to ensure that the project progresses in conformity with the work plan. This WP will also ensure the close relationship and interaction between CSA Oceans 2 and the JPI Oceans and its structures namely the Management Board (MB), Executive Committee (ExCom), Strategic Advisory Board (STAB) and the JPI Oceans Secretariat and hence the Member States taking forward actions under the JPI Oceans process.

This will be done by maintaining and further developing fruitful relationships ensuring connectivity, visibility and exploiting synergies with the different relevant actors in the field of marine and maritime sciences. These are the research funding organisations (RFO) and Ministries, the research performing organisations (RPO), industry and funding organisations outside the EU. Also to maximize the knowledge outcome of activities by identifying and engaging the users and producers of research in the design and execution of the actions.

WP4 Forward-looking activities (Lead: KDM, Co-lead: IFD)

Work package 4 will conducting thematic foresight exercises in areas and fields which the Management Board of JPI Oceans considers appropriate. It will also look at the processes through which JPI Oceans will update and develop its Strategic Research and Innovation Agenda and Implementation Plan in the future for consideration by the JPI Oceans Management Board. In coordination with WPs 1 and 2, WP4 will involve the JPI Oceans Management Board (or ExCom) and Strategic Advisory Board and regular interaction with these boards is planned, to present the progress and results of the CSA Oceans project and to discuss potential next steps in this regard.

WP5 Develop information management and outreach tools to support JPI Oceans implementation and networking (Lead: VLIZ, Co-lead: IFREMER)

Work Package 5 will create new and develop existing communication and outreach tools. The work package aims to enable access to information, data and research results from the JPI Oceans’ actions. WP5 will also work with other WPs within the CSA Oceans 2 to ensure that outputs from other work packages are presented in the most optimal format.

M5.1 New CSA Oceans 2 section on JPI Oceans website online (month 1) This proposal version was submitted by David COX on 11/06/2015 12:04:52 CET. Issued by the Participant Portal Submission Service.
