Impetu Solutions provides strategic guidance for the Joint Programming Initiative Healthy and Productive Seas and Oceans (JPI Oceans), which is a coordinating and integrating platform, open to all EU Member States and Associated Countries. While bringing together the interested Member States and Associated Countries JPI Oceans aims to add value by:
- avoiding fragmentation and unnecessary duplication
- planning common and flexible initiatives
- facilitating cooperation and foresighting
- establishing efficient mechanisms for interaction and knowledge transfer between the scientific community, industry & services, and policy makers at high level in order to solve the grand challenges more effectively.
In its role as a coordination platform, JPI Oceans will focus on making better and more efficient use of national research budgets, which represent 85% of the marine-maritime funding within Europe. One of the JPI’s goals is to develop joint research programs in which countries can be involved on a voluntarily basis (variable geometry).
