The Implementation Phase of DANUBIUS-RI has been given a boost by the award of a Horizon Europe grant under the “Developing and consolidating the European research infrastructures landscape, maintaining global leadership (HORIZON-INFRA-2021-DEV-02)” call.

DANUBIUS-IP is a 36-month Coordination and Support Action to support the ongoing development of DANUBIUS-RI towards its Operational Phase.

The key objectives are to:

• deliver a new governance structure for the transition to DANUBIUS-ERIC;

• enhance the ICT potential of the RI to enable virtual delivery of key services;

• implement the Science and Innovation Agenda supported by agile and quality assured scientific services;

• demonstrate the value of the RI through examples of the unique services that it can offer to end-users across Europe and globally;

• expand the DANUBIUS-RI community and enhance its standing in the wider European and international environmental RI landscape; and

• ensure the wide communication of the potential of DANUBIUS-RI for significant social and economic impact.

Coordinated by GeoEcoMar (Romania), the HORIZON EUROPE DANUBIUS-IP project brings together 25 experienced partners from 14 countries across Europe in a consortium with complementary areas of multi-disciplinary expertise across the freshwater and marine research fields.
