eucarinet_logo1xAccording to EUCARINET:

The project EUCARINET,  is a four-year INCONET Coordination Action whose main goal is to strengthen bi-regional sustainable policy dialogue on Science and Technology (including in the ICT field) between EU Member and Associated States and the Caribbean Region, the Caribbean ACP countries, the overseas departments, and the Overseas Countries and Territories (OCTs). The consortium will run under the coordination of APRE with the following partners: MENON, CIRAD, EGL, UAB, CARICOM, UWI, UAG, UNIBE, CITMA, UNA. It will cover the whole Caribbean, with partners in Italy, Belgium, France, Netherlands, Spain, Guyana, Jamaica, Guadeloupe, Dominican Republic, Cuba, and Netherlands Antilles.

The main goal of the project is to establish a long lasting sustainable bi-regional multi-stakeholders policy dialogue on S&T at policy, programme and institutional (research entities) level, thus contributing to a threefold objective:

  • Create the conditions of the sustainable multi-stakeholders policy dialogue on S&T between the European Union, its member states, its associated states and the Caribbean Region, leading to a joint definition of S&T co-operation policies;
  • Foster interregional (UE-Caribbean) and intraregional cooperation in leading to the identification and prioritization of common research areas of mutual interest and benefit;
  • Stimulate and support the participation of the Caribbean research stakeholders in FP7, with a first emphasis on the “People Programme”.
