Research and innovation in EU outermost regions
Some EU Member States have part of their territory located in areas of the world that are remote from Europe. There are nine such regions, known as outermost regions (ORs). The list includes Spain’s Canary Islands and the French overseas department of Guadeloupe. The participation of ORs in Horizon 2020 has been limited due to the fragmentation of the research community. The large potential for research activities therefore remains unexplored. The EU-funded FORWARD project intends to improve ORs’ excellence in research and innovation potential, supporting their participation in such EU-funded projects and helping to connect research activities with development in these areas. The project will analyse research and innovation ecosystems and, relying on the results, will implement tailored actions.
