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.

JERICO-RI is an integrated pan-European multidisciplinary and multi-platform research infrastructure dedicated to a holistic appraisal of coastal marine system changes. It aims to bridge existing continental, atmospheric and open ocean RIs, thus filling a key gap in the ESFRI landscape. JERICO-RI establishes the framework upon which coastal marine systems are observed, analysed, understood and forecasted.

  • 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.
