European - Latin American Network For Science and Technology

Basic Information


The EULANEST project intends to promote and co-ordinate research co-operation among EU Member States (MS) and Latin American countries (LAC), thus contributing to strengthen the impact of their national programmes on international cooperation in science and technology (S&T) with Latin America. EULANEST is intended to network European policy-makers and programme managers involved in promoting research co-operation with Latin America in all fields of science. This ERA-NET will prepare its partners towards the preparation, design, implementation and development of joint transnational research activities. EULANEST will first map and benchmark the cooperation activities in S&T among MS and LAC, identifying best practices and preparing the ground for a Joint Action Programme with the final goal of the launching of a joint call between the partners. Through these activities EULANEST will contribute to the building of the European Research Area (ERA) and, particularly, to strengthening the international dimension of the ERA by co-ordinating bilateral programmes of research co-operation with Latin America, both within and between European countries In addition EULANEST intends to help to develop a more coherent approach of the EU towards scientific cooperation with emerging Latin American countries, like Chile, Argentina, Brasil,.. in the present Framework and INCO programme where no specific treatment adequate to the characteristics of these countries is available.
