Forward meeting in brussels

From October 8 to 10th, the first mutual learning event of the FORWARD project took place in Brussels at the Canary Island Brussels Office, gathering 22 representative of the members of the project consortium from 8 European outermost regions (OR). This meeting aimed at sharing knowledge and experiences among OR on the major obstacles and levers that influence their participation in the European Framework Programme (FP) for R&I, and at drafting a common vision and roadmap for a joint strategy to increase the participation of ORs in Framework programmes.

To turn the vision into a roadmap and capitalize on peer-learning, the participants discussed in small groups the main obstacles for an increased FP participation and collectively defined realistic & impactful levers that will be integrated in a common action plan for FORWARD and beyond.

The results of the mutual learning event will feed the final diagnosis of OR performance and the FORWARD joint strategy.
