• Mission: 

    JONAS project addresses the issue of underwater noise and the threats it poses to sensitive species in the northeast Atlantic by streamlining ocean noise monitoring and risk management on a transnational basis.

    JONAS aims to harmonise technical approaches to the Marine Strategy Framework Directive (MSFD) requirements, promote quieter operational practices among users of the North Europe Atlantic marine space, support adoption of regional-scale approaches that benefit biodiversity and the MSFD implementation, and develop an innovative noise-monitoring visualisation platform supporting adaptive management of sensitive marine areas.

  • Collaboration with Blue-Cloud: 

    Usage and exploitation of Blue-Cloud VRE services: Jonas is implementing a VRE to solve the issue linked to underwater noise. Jonas and Blue-Cloud are evaluating the opportunity to bridge their VREs and standardise them.

    Contribution to Blue-Cloud Roadmap: Jonas project aims to contribute to shape the strategic Blue-Cloud Roadmap 2030, providing contributions from technical point of view.

    Joint dissemination/communication activities: Blue-Cloud and Jonas are planning to jointly organise events to disseminate the project results to a wider audience.
