Since the launch of Blue-Cloud, the project has proactively worked on establishing strong partnerships between a variety of actors, aiming to create long-lasting relationships both for attaining the Blue-Cloud’s long-term objectives and contributing to shaping the strategic Roadmap to 2030.

Blue-Cloud has established synergies in the Open Science, Blue Economy and Marine Research fields with E-infrastructures, Blue Data Infrastructures, and EU-funded projects as the project team believes that through collaboration and cooperation with initiatives operating in the same field, the value of Blue-Cloud services increases.

  • Joint dissemination & communication activities

The All-Atlantic Cooperation for Ocean Research and innovation (AANChOR) project is a European Union H2020 initiative whose main ambition is to promote the implementation of the South Atlantic Research and Innovation Flagship initiative and the Belém Statement (BS), signed by the European Union (EU), Brazil, and South Africa in 2017, to upscale research and innovation cooperation in the Atlantic Ocean, from Antarctica to the Arctic, started under the Galway Statement.

  • Contribution to the Blue-Cloud roadmap

FORCOAST aims to develop novel Copernicus-based downstream information services to that offer high-resolution water quality and met-ocean indicators in coastal and nearshore areas, to improve operation, planning and management of different marine activities in the sectors of wild fisheries, oyster grounds restoration, and bivalve mariculture. FORCOAST information services are co-designed with stakeholders, thereby ensuring that these services are tailored to meet their needs.
