The envisaged Blue Economy Partnership is foreseen as a co-funded partnership under the Horizon Europe R&I framework programme 2021-27. The format will be a public-public initiative with the core group of formal members and signatories comprised of research and innovation (R&I) ministries and funding agencies from the participating countries. To complete the partnership co-design process, they invite stakeholders to give their insights and suggestions on the first draft Strategic Research and Innovation Agenda (SRIA) in this open consultation.
The SRIA builds on existing mature and inclusively developed pan-European and regional strategic frameworks and is due by the end of January 2021. The current draft for the SRIA has been prepared by a drafting team lead by JPI Oceans and national representatives from Ireland and France, on the basis of input and feedback from representatives of member states and associated countries, associated experts and in close collaboration with the European Commission's Directorate-General for Research and Innovation.
