Briefly, the MedSpring project is a coordination and support action (FP7 – INCO.2012-1.3/ Mediterranean Partner Countries), built on the previous experience of the INCO.NET MIRA, but adapted to the new reality of the Euro-Mediterranean policy and the general orientations defined in the Euro-Mediterranean Conference of Barcelona (2-3 April 2012) and it is lead by the IAMB. It is mainly focused on three societal challenges (Energy, High Quality Affordable Food, and Scarcity of resources) and aims at tackling policy objectives by creating a dialogue and coordination platform of governmental institutions, research organisations, associations and civil society.
The call for contributions is addressed to young researcher, from southern Mediterranean countries, with a research focus on the Nexus among Energy; High Quality Affordable Food and Scarcity of resources (mainly water) and how it satisfies the sustainability dimensions (economic, environmental, social and considering the institutional/governance dimension as cross-cutting).
