“How can the Euro-Mediterranean cooperation in Research and Innovation (R&I) ) be strengthened”

Shared challenges are highlighting the need of global exchange in R&I and, thus, the importance of a mutual cooperation through the renewed partnership in the region.

The Regional Platform on R&I of the Union for the Mediterranean (UfM) organises a stakeholder event on the future of Euro-Mediterranean cooperation in R&I. The event will provide an overview of the latest developments in Euro-Mediterranean cooperation in R&I, as well as the presentation and discussion of the roadmaps and implementation plans in the priority areas:

  • Health

  • Renewable energy

  • Climate change

The event will involve a wide range of stakeholders from relevant research areas in Health, Renewable Energy and Climate Change to other actors like consumers, end-users, representatives of civil society (NGOs), SMEs, youths, innovators as well as other public and private actors in the respective fields, including decision makers and R&I funding agencies.
