Bi-regional dialogue platform on S&T to be established in Pacific

The Pacific-EU network for Science and Technology (S&T) will establish a bi-regional dialogue platform on S&T between the EU and the 15 member countries of the Africa Caribbean Pacific (ACP) Group of the Pacific region, namely, Cook Islands, Federate States of Micronesia, Fiji, Kiribati, Marshall Islands, Nauru, Niue, Palau, Papua New Guinea (PNG), Solomon Islands, East Timor, Tonga, Tuvalu, Samoa and Vanuatu. The PACE-Net project will also closely involve the Overseas Countries and Territories (OCTs) in the Pacific region (French Polynesia, New Caledonia, Wallis and Futuna, Pitcairn) while Australia and New Zealand will bring to PACE-Net project their long-standing expertise in the Pacific. PACE-Net will pursue the following objectives:

- To reinforce existing S&T dialogues and networks and promote regional integration for those networks. PACE-Net will seek to increase the cooperation between research organisations and universities in the region;

- To identify S&T international cooperation activities and programmes in the Pacific region. PACE-Net will set up dialogue fora bringing together the relevant S&T experts and stakeholders to establish the priority areas for FP7, including SICAs;

- To strengthen the coordination of S&T cooperation and the complementarities with activities and programs carried out by other European instruments. PACE-Net will examine possible synergies or complementarities with EU activities, especially with respect to challenges faced by developing countries. In particular, synergies with the European Development Fund shall be found.
