JERICO-NEXT has significantly enlarged its consortium compared to JERICO (FP7) (33 vs 27 partners) by including 11 new partners, and by giving a special emphasis on SMEs (6 as partners + some important SMEs as sub-contractors – NKE, Scanfjord, Tomas Rutten b.v. and Cytosense), European association (1 AISBL and 1 ERIC, 1 related ESFRI. EMSO) and biological observatories (15 partners in JERICO-NEXT). JERICO-NEXT will work closely with other ESFRI and I3 projects, to avoid duplication of effort. The EURO ARGO ERIC (profiling system) and the EMSO (sea-bottom observatories) are included in the partnership. EMBRC, ATLANTOS, FIXO3, NEXOS, … will be involved in the “Advisory committee”. All the physical, chemical and biological coastal data produced by JERICO-NEXT will be made available through a single European channel with strong interactions with EMODnet.
