Within the framework of a European programme, the AVITEM has developed a web platform on local food systems of northern Mediterranean cities. Its ambition is to create a network capable of capitalising on research and public policies dedicated to this objective.
The Avitem is ready to collaborate on any research project developing an application component in connection with Mediterranean communities.
DESCRIPTION OF YOUR ORGANISATION:
AVITEM's main goal is to establish a system for experience sharing, expertise, training and cooperation with a view of promoting integrated and exemplary approaches to urban and regional development amongst stakeholders from France and Union for the Mediterranean countries. This role implements three approaches:
- A cooperation system encouraging the initiation and coordination of integrated and exemplary approaches to urban and regional development in the Mediterranean
-A training system for public and private decision makers from Mediterranean countries, in the field of project engineering and on urban end regional issues
-A place to meet and hold discussions in the interests of revealing and capitalising on common working methods and concepts
The Partnership for Research and Innovation in the Mediterranean Area will devise new R&I approaches to improve water availability and sustainable agriculture production in a region heavily distressed by climate change, urbanisation and population growth
The PRIMA programme is an Art.185 initiative supported and funded under Horizon 2020, the European Union’s Framework Programme for Research and Innovation.
