Fostering research excellence
in EU Outermost Regions
Outermost regions are already dealing with major challenges, such as decarbonisation of energy systems, conservation and ecological restoration, climate change mitigation, or blue and circular economy development and thus have developped knowledge, skills and specific added value in topics at the heart of current and future European policies. Discover the cutting-edge capacities – infrastructures & public and private centers – of Outermost Regions in research and innovation!
Thematic working groups
Forward has 8 Thematic Working Groups (TWGs), inter-regional and based on common interest of ORs: increasing the number of FP projects submitted and financed. The TWGs are built on the diagnosis of ORs research and innovation ecosystems allowed identifying the common RIS3 domains, ranking on total EU Contribution, ranking of the different fields of expertise and potential fields of cooperation between the ORs. R&I experts and representatives from European and Third Countries’ public or private organisations, are invited to actively participating in Forward. If you would like to be part of any of the TWGs, you can find the registration form within the thematic area.
