8 Thematic working groups

Outermost Regions co-create thematic actions plan

As a reminder, Forward program aims to increase outermost regions (ORs) participation in EU framework programme and increase their Research and Innovation capacities.

8 thematic groups have been defined based on the pillars of the Horizon

Europe program and ORs common interests. Since December 2020, experts

from Europe, ORs and other countries have had online meetings.

After 3 months of exchanges/interactions/common work, an action plan has

been drawn by all the Thematic Working Groups (TWG) members with general ambition for each TWG.
