Promotion of the participation of Researchers from Mediterranean Partner Countries to European Research and Mobility Programmes

Objective

The PROMEDAccess project aims to increase the involvement of universities and institutions in Mediterranean Partner Countries (MPCs) in actions open to them under the 7th framework programme (7th FP) for research, technological development and demonstration activities such as Marie Curie actions, FP priorities, FP instruments and some higher education programmes dealing with research and the European Research area. The actual insufficient uptake of these programmes by universities and institutions in Mediterranean Partner Countries (MPC) is hampering the achievement of European policy goals with regard to research, the Euro-Mediterranean Partnership and the neighbouring countries. PROMEDAccess will be conducted in collaboration with the National Information Points (InPs) created by the SSAs Euro-MEDANet and Euro-MEDANet2. PROMEDAccess will organise training seminars for resource persons, who will make up the nucleus of the guidance units (named as "Europe units") within the MPC institutions. These re source persons will (a) serve as relays between teaching and research staff in their institution and the InPs, (b) provide guidance to members of their universities working on projects financed by European funds, and (c) facilitate the dissemination of I nPs information concerning European Union (EU) calls for proposals. The second overall objective is to gather information of interest to the European Union concerning Mediterranean networks of excellence in MPC dealing with 7th FP and the INCO-MED priorities in order to set up a 'partner search' functionality. Finally, an investigation of the difficulties in fulfilling certain eligibility criteria for 7th FP actions and associated programmes will be conducted and sent to the departments of EU DG Research in charge of these programmes.
