Marseille 11-12 February  

The MAGHRENOV Consortium is pleased to announce the MAGHRENOV International Conference

Brussels, February 2nd 2016

The MAGHRENOV project aims to support innovation in the Renewable Energy & Energy Efficiency sectors in the Euro-Mediterranean region. After two years of implementation, MAGHRENOV will hold its International Conference on 11-12 February 2016 in Marseille, at la Villa Méditerranée.  In partnership with CAPENERGIE – MARE and AVITEM.

In 2013, the MAGHRENOV project started under the European Union’s Seventh Framework Programme for research, technological development and demonstration (FP7). Its main goal is to support innovation and capacity building in Renewable Energy & Energy Efficiency (RE & EE) in the Euro-Mediterranean and Maghreb context. To do so, MAGHRENOV addresses three main pillars: “Innovation and Business Creation”, “Education” and “Research and Infrastructure”. The creation, implementation and development of a Euro-Mediterranean Innovation Space (EMIS) is at the core of the project structure.

The key objectives of this conference are threefold, namely:

  • Showcase the results of MAGHRENOV and exchange gained knowledge about them;
  • Review existing Euro-Mediterranean policies on sustainable energy and innovation and learn about developments in the RE&EE sector in both EU and MPC regions as carried through EU projects and other initiatives;
  • Draw recommendations from MAGHRENOV and associated projects experience in order to reinforce the Euro-Mediterranean collaboration in the RE&EE domain through concrete actions.

Moreover, the conference will be also an opportunity to promote and to engage the dialogue and the debate between participants coming from both the EU and Member Partner Countries about the needed next steps toward the EMIS development and its consolidation in the RE & EE fields.

The two-day International Conference will be composed of a political plenary session, parallel expert workshops, and three panel dialogues devoted to the three main pillars of MAGHRENOV.
