PROJECT OBJECTIVES

 

 

The ALCUE NET objective is to establish an EU-LAC platform bringing together actors involved in R&I orientation, funding and implementation, as well as other relevant stakeholders from the public and private sector and the civil society, in an effort to (i) generate relevant information for the design and implementation of specific plans and projects including R&D activities and set the basis for the establishment of an enabling policy and institutional environment for R&I better focused on addressing societal challenges and, where appropriate, key enabling technologies of common interest, and (ii) to support the development of more strategic and result-oriented partnerships in the context of bi-regional policy cooperation frameworks.

 

 

In pursuing this general objective ALCUE NET will build on the experiences and results of previous and ongoing bi-regional projects of the Seven Framework Programme (FP7) and will take into account and promote complementarities with activities carried out under other EU programs, notably those related to external policies. There has been much progress in this sense. At a specific level, both regions participate in the joint FP7 project aiming at facilitating priority setting and policy dialogue EULARINET (EU-LAC research and Innovation Networks between LAC and EU) who activities were intended to bring common visions on specific issues, coordinate activities and identify priorities of shared interest.

 

 

It will also contribute to extend the cooperation beyond research to cover innovation issues of common interest by:

− Structuring and strengthening the bi-regional cooperation on STI

− Supporting the institutional bi-regional Policy Dialogue STI

− Monitoring progress in the bi-regional STI cooperation

 

At the specific level the project will focus on:

A. Achieving progress towards joint improvement of key aspects of societal challenges related to assuring high quality affordable food, energy, and climate change.

B. Supporting Policy Dialogue at all relevant levels

C. Strengthening cooperation

D. Increasing effectiveness and impact
