GEO-CRADLE at Horizon 2020 Regional Seminar, 22/01/2019, Fes, Morocco

The Union for the Mediterranean (UfM) and the European Commission (EC), in partnership with the Ministry of National Education, Vocational Training, Higher Education and Scientific Research of the Kingdom of Morocco and the Euromed University of Fes (UEMF), jointly organised a regional seminar on Horizon 2020 which was held on 22 January 2019 on the UEMF campus in Fes, Morocco.

The seminar aimed at reinforcing the cooperation in research and innovation (R&I) across the Mediterranean, and specially at enhancing the joint participation of stakeholders from both Northern and Southern Mediterranean countries in the last calls for proposals of the Horizon 2020 programme of the European Union (EU).

Horizon 2020 EU work programmes specifically targeted the Southern rim of the Mediterranean as a partner for cooperation. In this context, the seminar was addressed to representatives from academia, research institutes, industrial stakeholders, SMEs, NGOs and policy-makers from the 43 UfM countries.

Haris Kontoes participated in this event with an oral presentation in the session “Lessons learnt and advice: Testimonies from Horizon 2020 project coordinators”.
