The SRIA

A common vision for the Black Sea

The Strategic Research and Innovation Agenda (SRIA) will guide stakeholders from academia, funding agencies, industry, policy and society to address together the Fundamental Black Sea challenges, to promote blue growth and economic prosperity of the Black Sea region, to build critical support systems and innovative research infrastructure and to improve education and capacity building.

The Initiative has identified four main pillars on which a new set of research and innovation actions can be developed.

 

4 PILLARS OF THE BLACK SEA SRIA

A key output of the SRIA is to help identify national level priorities to contribute to the development of national Blue Growth agendas. Furthermore, the actions proposed in the SRIA and their implementation will be generating scientific knowledge. Such new knowledge includes better ecosystem assessments, forecasts and management, as well as understanding of the vulnerabilities of the ecosystem. Knowledge is the key element towards science-based and well-informed decision-making. Such policymaking paves the way to a sustainable blue economy.
