MISSION ATLANTIC is part of a cluster of projects, funded by the European Union under the Horizon 2020 programme, to implement the Belém Statement. This joint declaration on South and Tropical Atlantic Research and Innovation Cooperation was signed by the EU, Brazil and South Africa in 2017, following on from the Galway statement on North Atlantic cooperation signed in 2013 by the EU, USA and Canada.

The 'sister' projects are part of the All-Atlantic Ocean Research Alliance and together aim to upscale research and innovation cooperation within the Atlantic basin, from Antarctica to the Arctic.

  • The AANChOR-CSA project (All-Atlantic Cooperation for Ocean Research and Innovation) is funded by the European Union under the Horizon 2020 programme, as a Coordination and Support Action (CSA), and will run from October 2018 to September 2022.

    The project aims to identify concrete joint actions to support the implementation of the EU-Brazil-South Africa Belém Statement, contribute to the implementation of the selected actions and define long term measures for sustainability of the cooperation framework beyond the lifetime of the CSA.

  • The Blue-Action project (Arctic impact on weather and climate) is funded by the European Union under the Horizon 2020 programme as a Research and Innovation Action (RIA) and will run from December 2016 to September 2021.

    The project aims to model and predict the impact of warming in the Arctic region and develop new techniques to improve forecast accuracy.

  • The SO-CHIC project (Southern Ocean Carbon and Heat Impact on Climate) is funded by the European Union under the Horizon 2020 programme as a Research and Innovation Action (RIA) and will run from November 2019 to October 2024.

    The project aims to unlock an understanding of some of the key Southern Ocean processes, which represent the main limitation of the current generation of climate models in their way to represent past and future global heat and carbon cycles.
