The Caribbean Science Foundation will host the next annual ALCUENET LAC NCP (Latin America and the Caribbean National Contact Points) meeting in Barbados on May 25-27, 2015. CARICOM representatives, Ministers of government, Country representatives, researchers, Small and Medium Enterprises and other stakeholders will gather to discuss ALCUENET’s five priority areas: Energy, ICT, Biodiversity and Climate Change, Bioeconomy and Health.
The main objectives of this workshop are:
a) to inform and update all participants about the opportunities for third countries in European Union’s New Innovation and Research Framework Programme – Horizon 2020
b) to develop and strengthen the capacities of existing LAC NCP and also expand the LAC NCP network.
The achievement of both objectives, will allow generating necessary synergies to enhance the science and technology cooperation between both regions (EU- LAC).
