EU-INCO-MED

International Research Cooperation with Mediterranean Partner Countries


EU-INCO is the international scientific cooperation section of the European Commission Research Framework Programmes (FP), which include water research. EU-INCO's mandate is to jointly mobilise European and partner countries' research teams to help solve social problems of regional interest to partner countries.

EU-INCO-Med  corresponds to the research action on priorities in line with the framework of the Euro-Mediterranean Partnership. The sea and its surroundings need looking after and sustainable solutions found to ensure common resources are not exhausted. This programme looks for opportunities to contribute high-quality and relevant scientific knowledge to scientific and technological partnerships working in synergy with other means of co-operation mobilised through the Barcelona process. Major issues include risk and conflict prevention, environmental and water management, food security, RTD and innovation policies.

Countries that fall within the remit of INCO-Med are those of the Euro-Med Partnership: Algeria, Egypt, Jordan, Lebanon, Malta, Morocco, West Bank and Gaza Strip, Syria, Tunisia, and Turkey.
