Conclusions & Recommendations

  • A systematized assessment of progress of S&T bilateral cooperation in the Euro-Mediterranean region is necessary to identify strengths and weaknesses and to build up a coherent regional strategy.

  • The indicators proposed might be the subject of a specific joint initiative EU-MPCs, and used for a common evaluation which might be relevant both for re-orienting cooperation under existing Agreements and paving the way for a possible regional agreement.

  • In this context, the role of NFPs could be reinforced as pivotal actors of bilateral cooperation.

  • To ensure the success of bilateral cooperation it is crucial recognizing the central role played by the civil society. The involvement of the society should be guaranteed by: transparency, high quality dissemination, participation in the definition of themes/topic to be included in the research cooperation agenda.
