JPI Oceans and JPI Climate open transnational call 'Oceans and climate'

JPI Oceans and JPI Climate launch a transnational call on "Oceans and climate". Funding bodies from Belgium, France, Germany, Portugal, Ireland, Italy, Latvia and Norway have earmarked a total budget of 8.1 M EURO for this call.

The call focusses on three topics:

  1. Strengthening our understanding of climate variability and extremes resulting from the interactions with the oceans such as extratropical and tropical cyclones, and how they are affected by climate change on a range of time scales.
  2. Improving the representation of air-sea interactions, physical and biogeochemical ocean processes in Earth System Models to better represent small-scale non-linear processes as well as water, energy and carbon cycles. Model-data analyses using innovative approaches will be welcome.
  3. Improving estimates of climate change induced modifications of ocean physics and ocean chemistry, associated with biogeochemical cycles, including ocean acidification and carbon sequestration.

BELSPO will fund the Belgian partners participating in the project on a budget of 500.000 EURO.

Deadline for proposal submission:  14 June 2019, 1PM
