The EU-CELAC PLATFORM FOR FUNDING AGENCIES represents a group of funding agencies from Latin America, the Caribbean and Europe wishing to collaborate in bi-regional science, technology and innovation (STI).
It serves as an information and communication platform and offers guidelines, as well as online working spaces, to facilitate and enhance the development of concrete joint initiatives, such as joint calls.
Thus, the EU-CELAC PLATFORM FOR FUNDING AGENCIES supports the implementation of the Common EU-CELAC Research Area and creates further added value to its three pillars: Mobility of Researchers; International outreach of Research Infrastructures; Increased thematic cooperation to address global challenges.
The platform is supported by the EU-CELAC Interest Group which is a group of funding agencies from CELAC, EU Member States and Associated Countries wishing to cooperate in bi-regional STI collaboration. It builds on the collaboration experience and mutual trust established in the ERANet-LAC project 2013-2017 (FP7).
