Transdisciplinary Research for Ocean Sustainability

The Belmont Forum, in collaboration with Future Earth and JPI Oceans, launches a call of circa 16 M€ of cash and in-kind resources aiming at bringing together researchers and other expertise across the globe to innovate solutions to accelerate sustainable use of oceans and minimize the effects from global change.

  • Topic 1 - Pathways toward a sustainable and equitable use of oceans
  • Topic 2 – Accounting for and minimizing impacts of global change
