Meeting on research for the Mediterranean organized by the Interministerial Delegation for the Mediterranean

On Friday June 9, the Interministerial Delegation for the Mediterranean is organizing a meeting on research for the Mediterranean. This meeting is organized in cooperation with Plan Bleu, the Directorate General for Globalization of the Ministry for Europe and Foreign Affairs, the Ministry of Higher Education and Research, the Institute for Research and Development , and the Institution of Ocean Sciences (of Aix-Marseille University).

The purpose of this meeting is threefold:

  • set up a panorama of research for the Mediterranean,
  • present the landscape of funding mechanisms, with a particular focus on European mechanisms,
  • and questioning the establishment of a new dynamic in favor of research for the Mediterranean.

The meeting will be divided into different cycles, themselves composed of “Round Tables”. These will focus in particular on the themes of water, sustainable agriculture and food security, biodiversity and clean energy. More specific interventions will also be proposed, such as an update on research funding in the Mediterranean or an exchange with the southern shore.

Plan Bleu will intervene more particularly in the “Round Table” on the subject of biodiversity, through François Guerquin, Director of Plan Bleu.

Many major players in research and sustainable policy in the Mediterranean will be present. We will count in particular on the presence of the City of Marseille, the maritime Prefectures of Marseille and Toulon, the European Commission, but also the IRD, the University Côte d’Azur, the University of Corsica, the Ecole Centrale Méditerranée , the Mediterranean Water Institute, CIRAD, CIHEAM, INRAE, IFREMER and LAB’HOMERE. .
