4-PRIMA Project event | April 7, 2017 | Piran Slovenia
Along the 4-PRIMA Coordination and Support action (CSA), funded by the H2020 programme of the EU, EMUNI is organising this Seminar, which seeks to establish mutual perception and understanding on some cross cutting issues of particular importance and relevance to the PRIMA initiative, namely science diplomacy (SD) and scientific mobility (SM). Inclusion of such concepts into the PRIMA initiative is of value to policymakers, research centres, educational institutions, the European Commission and above all the PRIMA partners as they design the first work programme.
Towards this goal, EMUNI intends to bring together a group of high-level stakeholders (policy makers, scientists, international and civil society organisations) in addition to the 4-PRIMA partners to deliberate and brainstorm on how to best benefit from SD and SM in the PRIMA initiative.
The relevant questions to be considered include:
A key goal of this workshop is to develop specific recommendations to Euro-Mediterranean policy makers (including the EU), funding agencies, universities, research institutions, PRIMA general assembly and other identified stakeholders to integrate the concepts of SD and effective scientific mobility in their national, regional and bi-regional programmes.
