MSCA Cluster event on Mission Ocean and Waters

How Research & Innovation help restore and protect our ocean and waters

On 7 June, the European Research Executive Agency (REA) and the European Commission organised a Marie Skłodowska-Curie Actions event on how to protect and restore our ocean and waters through Research and Innovation (R&I).

The event convened researchers, experts and EU policymakers, to explore how R&I can help achieve the objectives of the EU Mission “Restore our Ocean and Waters”.

Discussions focused on topics such as protecting and restoring marine and freshwater ecosystems and biodiversity, preventing and eliminating pollution, as well as making the blue economy carbon-neutral and circular.

The event brought together excellent projects and researchers funded under the Marie Skłodowska-Curie Actions (MSCA), as well as other research and innovation initiatives, such as the European Institute of Innovation and Technology (EIT).

The event is part of the Commission’s multiple actions aimed at enhancing policy feedback practices and synergies across EU programmes. It showcased outstanding EU-funded projects, that propose solutions to some of the challenges increasingly affecting European rivers, coasts and seas.

The cluster event will also contribute to the implementation and monitoring of EU policy objectives, such as the Zero Pollution Action Plan for Water, Air and Soil or the Marine Strategy Framework Directive.
