The ERANETMED call on “Fostering sustainable water management for the economic growth of the Mediterranean region” aims at strengthening Euro-Mediterranean research networks tackling the challenge of water in rural and remote areas in coastal zones and inlands.
Applicants will have to provide a methodological approach able to deliver a tangible contribution to socio-economic growth and sustainable development in the region considering environmental, ecosystem dimensions and energy use. All projects will have to include collaborative research actions. Other actions more related to innovation and mobility are strongly encouraged and their inclusion in the project work plan will be carefully considered and positively evaluated.
ERANETMED co-funds this call with its partners ANR (France), ASRT (Egypt), BMBF (Germany), CIHEAM Bari (Int. Org.), CNRS-L (Lebanon), DGRSDT (Algeria), HCST (Jordan), MESRSFC (Morocco), MESRST (Tunisia), MIUR (Italy), MINECO (Spain) RPF (Cyprus), STDF (Egypt) and TUBITAK (Turkey).
The overall ERANETMED objective is to enhance the collaboration and common capacity of research program owners from the participating countries to address some of the major challenges that the Mediterranean is facing.
