Within the UNIMED General Assembly 2019, the session “Academic cooperation through capacity building and research: opportunities and examples” will be hosted on October 24th, 2019 by the Holy Spirit University of Kaslik.
Academic cooperation in the Euro-Mediterranean region is ensured in particular through capacity building activities and joint research actions. The international cooperation tools provided by the European Union and international organisations such as the Food and Agriculture Organisation – FAO, largely contribute to creating bridges among people and societies, reinforcing scientific dialogue, cultural cooperation, trust, and mutual understanding.
The European Union tools and other international actors play a crucial role in building stable and effective relations among European and Southern Mediterranean countries.
Academic communities, students, faculty members and administrators have benefited from a wide range of programmes promoting cooperation, mobility, research and capacity building.
The activities undertaken by the Euro-Mediterranean academic community show the value of encouraging and supporting this work, while also seeking more synergies in light of current multifaceted dynamics and challenges.
This workshop seeks to propose a reflection by the Euro-Mediterranean academic community on the relationships between the European Union, international institutions and the Mediterranean region, offering an opportunity for evaluation and revaluation of regional policies. Concurrently, it allows for the improvement of the knowledge and use of EU-supported programmes in the Euro-Mediterranean cooperation for the foreseeable future, thus facilitating the identification of further needs.
Date: 24th October 2019, 04:00 pm – 05:30 pm.
Venue: Jean El Hawa Auditorium, Holy Spirit University of Kaslik Campus, Jounieh (Lebanon)
