The meeting was entirely dedicated to the presentation of the EU funded Maghrenov project.

The Maghrenov project addresses Mediterranean innovative markets in the field of Renewable Energies and Energy Efficiency. It included three main objectives:

1)      Explore practical methods devoted to capacity building and to fostering innovation on Mediterranean RE& EE markets;

2)      Favour convergence between EU and MPCs initiatives both for the development of sustainable energies adapted to regional specificities and for the establishment of a shared and dynamic Research and Innovation Systems (R&IS) in the domain; and

3)      Create real mobility between young academics and entrepreneurs in both regions (EU and MPC) making use of the build-up capacity.

Speakers highlighted that R&D projects located in the Mediterranean area may help supporting mobility and creating new opportunities for exchange between researchers, managers, investment partners and policy makers at national and Euro-Mediterranean levels. The working plan encompassed the launch of Master’s Programme on RE&EE, the organisation of international networking events, the inter-connecting of international research initiatives and the continuous promotion of project-related materials through formal channels and social media, the project serves to generate new partnerships and new employment opportunities.

Maghrenov also helped to give birth to new sectorial start-ups and provided useful guidance for future similar projects.

The Chair thanked speakers for their interesting and complete presentations and stressed that cooperation in the file of energy is one of the main priorities for the Euromed region. He also called to a global reconsideration of the EU neighbouring policies from another angle in light of quickly changing geopolitical scenario and technological progress.
