On July 11, 2017, in Brussels, Mr. Marcello Scalisi, UNIMED Director had an important meeting with Mr. Carlos Moedas, European Commissioner for Research, Science and Innovation.
During the meeting, Mr. Scalisi introduced UNIMED and its commitment to Higher Education, Research and Innovation in the Mediterranean Region through its Network of Associated Universities. The main theme of the discussion centred on the fact that Mediterranean Universities should have a louder voice and a better role in the domain of research and innovation.
UNIMED will support the PRIMA initiative, and the meeting was also the occasion to introduce to the Commissioner the new UNIMED Sub-Network on Food and Water.
The importance of improving the Research dimension and the Mobility of Researchers, both key issues for the Euro-Mediterranean Cooperation, was also stressed during the meeting.
