Joint call of JPI Oceans and JPI Climate.
Call for proposals

The Belgian Science Policy Office (BELSPO) is one of the Belgian representatives in the JPI Oceans and JPI Climate.

The JPI Oceans and JPI Climate are launching a transnational call on “Oceans and climate”. For this call funding partners from Belgium, France, Germany, Ireland, Italy, Latvia, Norway and Portugal have allocated a total amount of up to € 8.1 million funding.

The topics of the call are:

  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

Proposals need to involve eligible research partners from at least three participating countries. Projects will be funded for up to 36 months.

More information (call text, forms, online submission tool, ...) is available on the following websites 

BELSPO will finance Belgian partners involved in the projects and has foreseen a budget of 500.000 EURO.

Belgian partners are requested to follow the BELSPO directives which are included in the annex of the call document (pg 16 to 18).

Deadline for submission of proposals is 14 June 2019 at 13:00 CEST using the online tool on the above mentioned website.
