Joint Programming Initiative Healthy and Productive Seas and Oceans (JPI Oceans)

This initiative was established in 2011 as a coordinating and integrating strategic platform, open to all EU Member States and Associated Countries who invest in marine and maritime research. JPI Oceans covers all European sea basins with 21 participating countries which provide a long-term integrated approach to marine and maritime research and technology development in Europe. In the near future, the VIVALDI partners will investigate possible synergies between the VIVALDI project and this initiative.
