Towards the EU-LAC Knowledge Area

Climate change, demographic transitions, expectations for better health and greener and more inclusive economies are among the drivers for more scientific and technological cooperation and innovation. The Guadalajara Summit in 2004 therefore placed the development of an EU-Latin America-Caribbean Knowledge Area on the political agenda of bi-regional relations. In 2010, this concept gains fresh momentum through the endorsement of a new Joint Initiative for Research and Innovation. A new publication traces the development of cooperation and illustrates the link between policy and action through a sample of concrete research collaborations, mostly from the 6th and 7th Research Framework Programmes. They represent a sizeable innovation potential for sustainable development and social inclusion, the focus of the 2010 EU-LAC Summit in Madrid.
