JPI Oceans - Science Policy Adviser

The Joint Programming Initiative Healthy and Productive Seas and Oceans (JPI Oceans) is a pan-European intergovernmental platform that strives to increase efficiency and impact of national investments in marine and maritime research and innovation. JPI Oceans focuses on long-term collaboration between EU Member States, Associated Countries and international partners and adds to the value of national research and innovation investments by aligning national priorities, addressing them with Joint Actions and amplifying impact through strategic engagements.

JPI Oceans is involved in two major initiatives of the EU Horizon Europe research and innovation programme. In the Sustainable Blue Economy Partnership*, JPI Oceans is a partner with responsibilities in communication, outreach, community building, capacity enhancement and ocean literacy. In the Coordination and Support Action (CSA) PREP4BLUE in service of the Mission ‘Restore our Ocean and Waters’, JPI Oceans has roles in engaging communities and innovating funding mechanisms.

The JPI Oceans secretariat is looking for a science policy adviser in support of its tasks and activities, with a focus on the abovementioned Horizon Europe initiatives, taking over from a colleague who is moving to a different role in the Partnership.
