AANChOR – All-Atlantic Cooperation for Ocean Research and innovation

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.


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.


The project AQUA-LIT has worked together with the aquaculture stakeholders from the Mediterranean Sea, the Baltic Sea and the North Sea, to develop a toolbox of solutions, measures and recommendations to better handling marine litter from a prevention to a recycling state, further aiming to make the aquaculture industry a leading sector on addressing this global and escalating issue.


Cos4Cloud addresses the challenge of providing data quality to citizens by developing ten technological services to improve citizen science platforms, also known as citizen observatories, to help them boost the quantity and the quality of observations and ensure their long-term viability.


The ODYSSEA project has developed an interoperable and cost-effective platform that fully integrates networks of observing and forecasting systems across the Mediterranean basin, addressing both the open sea and the coastal zone.


NEANIAS promotes Open Science practices and plays an active role in the materialization of the EOSC ecosystem by efficiently engaging large scientific and professional communities.

Be Open

The overarching vision of BE OPEN is to create a common understanding on the practical impact of Open Science and to identify and put in place the mechanisms to make it a reality in transport research.



FNS-Cloud aims to develop an on-demand, federated network (cloud infrastructure), supporting access and exploitation of FNS resources, integrated with other thematic clouds and the European Open Science Cloud (EOSC).


The overarching goal of ENVRI-FAIR is to implement FAIR (Findable, Accessible, Interoperable, Re-usable) principles in the ENVRI (European Environmental and Earth System Research Infrastructures) community and connect it to the European Open Science Cloud.



EuroSea aims to co-design a new approach that could improve European ocean observing and forecasting services and products by building the community needed for a system that delivers services and products on the ocean, ocean climate, marine ecosystems and their vulnerability to human impacts.
