1st SEAS-ERA Strategic Forum

07 September, 2011

This 1st SEAS-ERA Strategic Forum, entitled "SEAS-ERA & JPI Oceans: commonalities and synergies" will provide an opportunity to participants to:

  • Be apprised of theSEAS-ERAproject and of the JPI "Healthy and ProductiveSeasand Oceans", their workplans and progress;
  • Articulate how the JPI andSEAS-ERA(and possibly other marine and environmentalERA-NETs) could concretely benefit from, contribute to, and where appropriate, align the activities of one another;
  • Reflect on the structuration of the "funding" component of the future Marine and Maritime Science Partnership (as developed within the FP7 MARCOM+ project).


The SEAS-ERA Forum is mostly targeted towards the "European Marine Research Funding Community" - i.e. representatives of:

  • national Research Funding Organisations involvedSEAS-ERA;
  • the Member and Associated States involved or interested in the Joint Programme Initiative "Healthy and ProductiveSeasand Oceans";
  • national Research Funding Organisations involved in other marine or environmental FP7ERA-NETs (running or future).


The expected outputs of this 1st SEAS-ERA Strategic Forum:

  • Indicative roadmap to link plannedSEAS-ERAactivities with future JPI activities (and possibly with other marine and environmentalERA-NETs). In order to ease the round table discussion and development of such roadmap, theSEAS-ERAcoordinator will be invited to highlight three key activities which could contribute to, benefit from, the JPI developments, and respectively for the JPI Secretariat;
  • Joint discussion of the "European Marine Research Funding Community" on the proposal(s) for a Marine and Maritime Science Partnership as developed by the MARCOM+ project. See: "Towards an Integrated Marine and Maritime Science Community" (MARCOM+);
  • Informed participation at the 2nd MARCOM+ Open Forum (08/09/11 at the Hotel Marivaux in Brussels). This related event provides an opportunity to discuss and debate proposal(s) on the structure of a future European Marine and Maritime Science Partnership, together with the wider marine and maritime research community, as well as representative of the industry sector and policy and decision makers.
