Join-MED: Establishing the EU-Mediterranean ICT Research Network

This is a stand in the International village, located in Zone D: International Village. Stand number: D12

The Join-MED project is setting up the EU-Mediterranean ICT research network for Europe and Mediterranean partner countries (MPC).

This exhibit will provide a detailed view on the ICT research landscape in the Mediterranean region. Visitors will be able to meet researchers from Algeria, Egypt, Jordan, Lebanon, Morocco, the Palestinian Authority, Syria and Tunisia. The stand will display results from the FP6 project, MED-IST (Mediterranean Information Society) and the FP7 project, Join-MED. The first project established strategic research priorities for the MPC, while the second is fostering collaboration with Europe through a series of networking events and developing strategies for harmonising ICT research policies in all Mediterranean countries. Selected ICT organisations will be available to discuss their research work and set up new partnerships for the upcoming ICT calls.
