Renewable energy priority setting for EU & Caribbean in research and innovation

Date: July 6th and 7th and 2011

Venue: Pointe à Pitre, Guadeloupe at the University of Antilles and Guyane



The Priorities Dialogue Workshop: “Renewable energy priority setting for EU & Caribbean in research and innovation” will take place in Pointe à Pitre, Guadeloupe at the University of Antilles and Guyane on July 6th and 7th and 2011.  This conference, organized in collaboration with the DG Research - Directorate D “International cooperation”, brings together all stakeholders under one roof including high level researchers, policy makers and experts to identify Common Research Lines in renewable Energy Specific Areas for mutual benefit of Caribbean countries and Europe.

The energy area has to be considered in a broad and inclusive way, covering major sub-themes and fields. Identifying and defining bottom-up research lines and scientific priorities can be the basis for fostering new cooperation opportunities for EU and Caribbean research actors in FP7 and beyond. These research lines have to be intended as main research priorities that the experts will point out, share and discuss on: these research priorities will be transferred to the EC and they could evolve in future opportunities for International Cooperation under the three concerned thematic areas.

The results of the workshop will be included in the comprising paper: “Caribbean Regional Position Paper on EU-Caribbean S&T cooperation priorities”.
