The UfM Regional Platform in Research and Innovation is inviting the opinion, ideas and input of relevant individuals and organisations from across the region to help outline the future of R and I cooperation between the EU and the Mediterranean. An online Consultation call has been put out for higher education and research institutions, civil society, private sector entities and governmental organisations at national, regional and local levels. Submissions are accepted until 7 May.
The survey will help UfM Member States identify the right topics to focus on in each priority area, how to achieve Sustainable Development Goals, and what barriers to effective cooperation might be encountered.
Consultation answers will be taken into account and further refined by the UfM Expert Group into three Roadmaps, corresponding to the three priority areas of health, renewable energy and climate change. These Roadmaps will set out interventions for increasing collaboration capacity in the coming years, and will be discussed at the UfM R&I Platform in June.
