Final Report - EURO-MEDANET2 (Opening up the European Research Area to the Mediterranean Countries)

Project ID: 510666
Funded under: FP6-INCO


The EURO-MEDANET2 project aimed to establish an effective network of Information points (InPs) in selected Mediterranean target countries in order to promote the involvement of organisations from those countries in European Union (EU) Research and development (R&D) activities and vice versa. In particular, EURO-MEDANET2 aimed to design and implement a set of measures that would create a fully operational network of InPs in four Mediterranean countries - Algeria, Egypt, Lebanon and Syria.

The specific document provides a summary of the overall project objectives and a thorough overview of the work performed and results achieved through training seminars and meetings.

It was anticipated that the successful implementation of the project would:
- identify and train suitable local actors for the establishment of a support mechanism aimed at the preparation of successful proposals and the widest possible diffusion of information;
- facilitate the creation / improvement of a trans-national network of InPs in Mediterranean countries in order to promote their participation in the appropriate activities of FP6 and future FPs;
- support the ongoing dialogue and strengthen the cooperation between the Mediterranean countries, EC, the Member States (MS), the Associated States (AS) and the Associated Candidate Countries (ACCs) specifically in the field of scientific Research and technological development (RTD) and demonstration within the Sixth Framework Programme (FP6);
- serve as a testbed for identifying best practices in the setup of support mechanisms and infrastructures for R&D in countries other than the existing MS.
