FP7 – a directory of all the projects involving Mediterranean partners

The European Commission has published a comprehensive directory of all the projects involving at least one partner from the Mediterranean Partner Countries supported under the EU's Seventh Framework Programme (FP7).
 
The 593-page publication, 'International cooperation with Mediterranean Partner Countries in FP7 - project synopses' has been prepared on the occasion of the 'Euro-Mediterranean Conference for Research and Innovation: An agenda for a renewed partnership' organised by the European Commission, Directorate General for Research and Innovation, in Barcelona next week, on 2 and 3 April 2012. The conference aims to set out a path for Euro-Mediterranean Cooperation in Research and Innovation, based on closer cooperation on research and innovation policy.
 
The directory includes all the projects with the participation of at least one partner from the Mediterranean Partner Countries, which have been supported under FP7. The projects are organised in eleven thematic chapters, which include collaborative research, networking, competence building, infrastructure and mobility projects.
 
A short description and a list of all participating organisations and contact persons are provided for each project.
 
Ahead of the conference, the European Commission has also published a brochure showcasing a selection of success stories from EU-funded science and technology projects, as well as a fact sheet answering frequently asked questions about Euro-Mediterranean cooperation in research and innovation.
 
The ENPI Info Centre has also prepared a press pack outlining ongoing cooperation in the field between the European Union and its Mediterranean partner countries. The press pack looks at research and innovation as a key axis of cooperation, with particular attention on the EU's 7th Research Framework Programme (FP7), as well as the opportunities available for Mediterranean partners at a regional, bilateral, and individual research level.
