Objective

ARIMNet2 has the following objectives:

1. To develop an integrated strategic research agenda (ISRA) describing key priorities for Europe and Mediterranean Partners Countries in the field of Mediterranean Agriculture Research and Innovation (WP1). The ISRA will cover short, medium and long period needs and common issues of concern to the participating partner states. The ISRA will be used to strengthen the cooperation between national research programmes together with agreements on how ...

ARIMNet2 has the following objectives:

1. To develop an integrated strategic research agenda (ISRA) describing key priorities for Europe and Mediterranean Partners Countries in the field of Mediterranean Agriculture Research and Innovation (WP1). The ISRA will cover short, medium and long period needs and common issues of concern to the participating partner states. The ISRA will be used to strengthen the cooperation between national research programmes together with agreements on how the research agenda is to be implemented and reviewed. It will be done taking into account complementarities with other initiatives, in particular the JPI FACCE and Water JPI and the INCO-Nets related projects (MIRA and SPRING projects and the 2013 ERANETMED).
2. To consolidate the cooperation mechanism initiated in ARIMNet through the set up of two novel joint calls for transnational research projects (WP2) and the elaboration of guidelines for monitoring the research projects funded inside joint calls (WP3).
3. To demonstrate the feasibility of joint activities in some areas relevant to the project and implement those that are jointly strategic. During ARIMNet some crucial issues have been identified in a perspective of capacity development: training of young researchers, mobility and networking of researcher laboratory, sharing of infrastructures and data. Among them, ARIMNet2 will develop pilot actions (WP4) i) to develop scientific exchanges between researchers and research groups in the Mediterranean, (ii) to strengthen the coordination and coherence in research management between regional and national institutions (universities and research centers) and (iii) develop capacity building in scientific methods, concepts and lab management.
4. To foster agricultural knowledge and innovation system in order to ensure that the agricultural research will impact the stakeholders of the Mediterranean basin and support their economies (WP5). This work package will mainly focus on the integration of innovation specifically through the ideas about the Agricultural Knowledge and Innovation Systems (AKIS) that has been triggered inside the SCAR-CWG and will extend this reflection to the Mediterranean area.

The objective of the WP1 of ARIMNet2 is to develop a common scientific and strategic agenda that could lead to a roadmap for enhancing cooperation in the field of Mediterranean Agriculture. Based on the common knowledge produced in ARIMNet, a further step will be achieved by deepening the scientific and strategic analysis of the challenges for the future and identifying actions.

The objective of the WP1 of ARIMNet2 is to develop a common scientific and strategic agenda that could lead to a roadmap for enhancing cooperation in the field of Mediterranean Agriculture. Based on the common knowledge produced in ARIMNet, a further step will be achieved by deepening the scientific and strategic analysis of the challenges for the future and identifying actions. A specific WP is focused on strengthening the links between research and innovation in the Mediterranean Agriculture. It will provide a common analysis on current functioning of the Agricultural Knowledge and Innovation Systems in the Mediterranean countries and recommendations related with research calls (like guidelines, selection criteria, etc.) that could be used to enhance the link between research and innovation.
