PRIMA – Partnership for Research and Innovation in the Mediterranean Area is the most ambitious joint programme to be undertaken in the frame of Euro-Mediterranean cooperation.
The overall objective of the PRIMA programme is to build research and innovation capacities and to develop knowledge and common innovative solutions for agro-food systems, to make them sustainable, and for integrated water provision and management in the Mediterranean area, to make those systems and that provision and management more climate resilient, efficient, cost-effective and environmentally and socially sustainable, and to contribute to solving water scarcity, food security, nutrition, health, well-being and migration problems upstream.
Proposals are expected to contribute to the establishment of a Mediterranean WEFE Nexus Community of Practice (NCoP), which is envisaged to:
Specifically, proposals should set out a plan on how to:
The NCoP should involve practitioners, scientists, national-level programme teams as well as members from inter-governmental bodies, non-government (NGOs) and civil society (CSOs) organisations, who will exchange data and best practices from hands-on demonstration actions providing evidence of the economic and socio-ecological benefits of the WEFE Nexus approach. By raising awareness among stakeholders, the CSA will help increase the implementation of the outcomes and support further uptake of the NCoP.
In collaboration with selected organisations, PRIMA-IS will steer the overall activities of the NCoP Community of Practice. In cooperation with PRIMA, the CSA will be responsible for building and engaging intensely in the Community by promoting discussion and projects. The CSA will assist PRIMA in identifying priority areas and types of activities that should be taken to ensure a self-sustainable Community of Practice. The details of these coordination activities will be defined with PRIMA during the grant preparation phase.
Legal entities established in the following countries and territories will be eligible to receive funding through PRIMA grants: Algeria, Croatia, Cyprus, Egypt, France, Germany, Greece, Israel, Italy, Jordan, Lebanon, Luxembourg, Malta, Morocco, Portugal, Spain, Slovenia, Tunisia and Turkey.
