  • Introduction

    Commissioner Carlos Moedas will host a High-Level Ministerial and Scientific event on 12-14 July 2017 in Lisbon, Portugal, joined by high-level government representatives from Brazil and South Africa, as well as from the European Union.

    This event will celebrate the launch of the South Atlantic Flagship Initiative between the European Union, Brazil and South Africa, aiming to better understand and protect marine ecosystems and the link between oceans and climate.

    A Statement on Atlantic Ocean Research and Innovation Cooperation between the European Union, Brazil and South Africa is planned to be signed during the event. This Statement will build on our bilateral achievements, namely the signing of bilateral Declarations of Intent on Marine Research and Innovation Cooperation with Brazil and South Africa, and the development of the South-South Framework for Scientific and Technical Cooperation in the South and Tropical Atlantic and Southern Ocean.  

    The signing of this Statement will cement the ambitions for intensifying our joint cooperation areas, which include, among others:

    • climate and ecosystem approaches;

    • earth and ocean observation and forecasting systems;

    • food security, fisheries management and aquaculture; and

    • ocean technology.


    The signing of the Statement will take place at the Belém Tower on 13 July, which bears testimony to some of the first Atlantic voyages, proving a fitting setting to celebrate this strong and successful cooperation.  

    Moreover, this Statement will realise the mutual benefits that would accrue from closely linking research activities in the South Atlantic and Southern Ocean with those in the North Atlantic. By tackling together the grand challenges and opportunities of the Atlantic Ocean as a system, exploiting the benefits it holds for our citizens, we enter a new era of Blue Enlightenment.
