SKIN

Short supply chain Knowledge and Innovation Network - SKIN - is an ambitious initiative of 20 partners in 14 countries in the area of Short Food Supply Chains (SFSCs). It intends to systematise and bring knowledge to practitioners, promote collaboration within a demand-driven innovation logic and provide inputs to policy making through links to the EIP-AGRI. SKIN will build and animate a community of about 500 stakeholders, with the strategic objective of setting up, at the conclusion of the project, a European association permanently working for the improvement of SFSCs efficiency and for the benefit of stakeholders and growth in the sector.

The community will be built and animated around the identification of good practices in short supply chains across Europe. Partners will scout, analyse and classify a significant number of cases in different countries. “Best practices” (at least 100) will be systematised, processed into highly usable formats (including video and page-flows) and made accessible to stakeholders via the web (following the EIP AGRI formats) and through the set-up of regional nodes, to allow a deeper penetration of existing knowledge into practice.

The work on good practices will also allow identifying key issues (hindrances or opportunities) around SFSCs. Such issues will be the main themes of 6 “innovation challenges workshops” the purpose of which is to stimulate stakeholders to propose new ideas for innovation based research or innovation uptake. These will be supported in a coaching phase where consortium partners deliver guidance to stakeholders for the full development of those innovative ideas.

FOWARIM, Malta

Fostering Water-Agriculture Research and Innovation in Malta – FOWARIM – is a coordination and support action funded by the European Union’s Horizon 2020 Research and Innovation programme (Call Identifier: H2020-TWINN-2015). The objective is to strengthen the research capacity of the Malta College of Arts, Science & Technology (MCAST)’s Water Research and Training Centre in 4 crucial themes related to the field of water use in agriculture:

  1. Decreasing Water Demand
  2. Making Use of Alternative Sources of Water
  3. Renewable Desalinization, On-Farm Desalinization and Utilization of Saline Water
  4. Decreasing Negative Environmental Externalities Caused by Nutrient-Rich Farm Waters.

This will be achieved by creating a favorable environment for capacity building targeting Maltese researchers, research institutions networking, research policy development. MCAST will be supported in addressing research deficiencies and networking gaps by the EU partners of established scientific excellence in the targeted research topics.

This will lead to strengthening MCAST’s research and S&T capacity in water use in agriculture, enhance the dynamism between the different partners, extending the partnership of research Institutions in the sector in question contribute, to an increase in peer-reviewed publications and complement in more ways than one Malta’s Smart Specialization Strategy.

WaterClima LAC-Coastal Zones, Latin America and Caribbean

Coastal zones in Latin America and the Caribbean have not been fully integrated into the socio-economic development. Most of the have suffered the impact of the wrong management of watersheds that have dragged sediments, residues and contaminated water thus modifying the ecosystems and affecting the population. 

The general objective of the project WaterClima LAC – Coastal Zones is to combat poverty and inequality by improving management of water resources and coastal zone environments as well as improving resilience, collaboration, shared vision and coordination. This will allow the implementation of co-management models in these zones adapted to the climate change effects in order to contribute to an efficient, inclusive and sustainable economic growth.

The main results of WaterClima LAC – Coastal Zones project include a better dialogue and cooperation on coastal zones management. A series of activities will be undertaken to achieve these results, including the socialization of the action – it will facilitate the systematization of experiences and best practices -, the creation of coordination and cooperation mechanisms by promoting strategic alliances and synergies between local and national actors.

MERID, Middle East

The Middle East Research and Innovation Dialogue – MERID project – is a coordination and support action funded by the EU framework programme for research and innovation (R&I) Horizon 2020 (H2020 – INT-INCO-2014 – INT-02-2014). The project, which builds on previous international cooperation experiences in R&I with Mediterranean and Middle East Partner Countries,  proposes a comprehensive action to intensify and encourage R&I cooperation between the EU and the Middle East region, directly involving partners from Egypt, Iran, Iraq, Jordan, Lebanon and Palestine. 

The project presents a set of interrelated objectives, on two  complementary levels.

  • Strategic level:

MERID intends to promote a comprehensive STI policy dialogue framework, where strategic instances of research from the EU and the target countries can be discussed. MERID should be seen as an agenda setting and a common methodology approach to current bottlenecks.

  • Operational level:

The overall approach is to build on a deep understanding of specific needs in the region, therefore focussing on interventions that are appropriate to the maturity of each country and research system relations with the EU.

The BeWater project promotes dialogue and collaboration between science and society for sustainable water management and adaptation to the impacts of global change in the Mediterranean.

BeWater uses an iterative process of mutual learning, participatory techniques and a bottom-up approach to ensure that stakeholdersplay an active role in determining appropriate strategies for management of river basins.

By actively engaging with local communities, BeWater involves society in discussions on current water uses and their related problems, raising public awareness of the importance of sustainable water management, with particular focus on the expected climate change impacts at River Basin scale.

In four Case Study River Basins across the Mediterranean, newly developed methodologies integrating physical, ecological, social and management processes are used to develop Water Management Options. These Management Options will be discussed with local communities who will participate in drawing up locally-relevant Adaptation Plans, which may be scaled up to develop guidelines of national and international relevance.
