A new paper titled “Toward a Comprehensive and Integrated Strategy of the European Marine Research Infrastructures for Ocean Observations” has been recently published on Frontiers of Marine Science. The article is authored by researchers from the five European Marine Research Infrastructures EMSO ERIC, Euro-Argo ERIC, ICOS-ERIC Marine, LifeWatch ERIC, and EMBRC-ERIC. The article highlights the importance of Research Infrastructures (RIs) and RIs collaborations to address the current environmental challenges due to climate change. The RIs capacity to deliver accurate and relevant information about fundamental processes in the geosphere, hydrosphere, biosphere and atmosphere, and their interactions are described and discussed, as well as the benefits that RIs collaborations bring in ensuring that data products, information, and knowledge are provided to stakeholders efficiently in a way that is directly relevant to their requirements, with the ultimate goal of meeting the UN Decade of Ocean Science for Sustainable Development objectives.
