The Euro-Mediterranean Expert Group meeting was held in Lisbon in June, 20th and 21st, 2013. The main aim of the meeting was to develop a common frame of topics - but not only - to be addressed for research valorization in Water, Food, and Energy.
The meeting in Lisbon was the first step of EMEG’s contribution towards the identification of recommendations and suggestions to the European Commission for the development of the future research agenda for the Euro-Mediterranean cooperation in research and innovation.
The meeting was organized in parallel workshops focused on Water, Food and Energy. Each workshop worked on the identification of topics, research results, and suggested actions on the ground of the results obtained through the Open Consultation.
During the meeting we posed some questions to the group leaders in the three topics: Ayman Rabi (water), Moez Jebara (food) and José Bonfim (energy).
