The vision is to improve and innovate the cooperation in coastal observatories in Europe by implementing the coastal part of a European Ocean Observing System, to cooperate with other European initiatives as ESFRI (EURO-ARGO, EMSO, EMBRC), Integrated Infrastructures (FIXO3 etc.), OCEAN OF TOMORROW sensors innovation project (SenseNET, NEXOS), the emerging European biological network (EMBRC) and EMODnet to contribute to provide services to the research community and the society.

In the continuity of JERICO (FP7), the objective of JERICO-NEXT consists in strengthening and enlarging a solid and transparent European network in providing operational services for the timely, continuous and sustainable delivery of high quality environmental data and information products related to marine environment in European coastal seas.

The JERICO-NEXT’s Best Practices Workshop on “Assimilating Technical Best Practice improvements to optimize network data flow” was a joint organization of project’s WP2 (leader: Rajesh Nair, OGS, Coleader: Wilhelm Petersen, HZG) and WP5 (leader: Leonidas Perivoliotis, HCMR, Coleader: Patrick Gorringe, EuroGOOS) and was held in Bergen, Norway on 5th of October 2017. The workshop was planned to examine the possibilities for closer collaboration between the above two WPs in order to better reconcile contrasts arising from differences in the way…

Transnational Access (TNA) facilities

The primary objective of the Jerico-NEXT Transnational Access activity is to enable scientists and engineers to freely access coastal infrastructures not available in their own countries. The Jerico-NEXT Consortium includes research structures such as Ferryboxes, Fixed Platforms, Gliders, and associated support facilities, i.e. Calibration Laboratories. Further information


Follow the Glider is a web tool aimed at students and developed by CEFAS, IMEDEA (CSIC-UIB) and SOCIB (Balearic Coastal Monitoring and Forecasting System) as part of the European FP7 – JERICO project. It is based on the glider-monitoring tool available at
