Atlantic research team-up planned

The EU, Brazil and South Africa are set to increase their joint research and innovation efforts relating to the Atlantic Ocean.

The collaboration, which is to be formally agreed on 13-14 July, aims to improve knowledge of marine ecosystems and the relationship between oceans and climate change. It will also study the connections between the Atlantic, the Arctic and the Antarctic, according to a draft agreement approved by EU member state representatives this week.

The draft Belém Statement on Atlantic Research and Innovation Cooperation, which was published on 14 June, said that the EU, Brazil and South Africa will provide a platform for joint research and innovation activities and promote scientific exchange. This will achieve operational efficiencies through the sharing of research infrastructure, data and method, according to the text.
