Pacific-European bi-regional Dialogue and Supporting Stakeholder Conference in Brussels

The 2nd Pacific-European bi-regional dialogue and supporting stakeholder conference is scheduled to take place in Brussels between 20th and 23rd March 2012.

The objective of the conference is to provide a forum for dialogue between representatives of the Pacific and the EU on joint research and capacity building activities in the Pacific. This dialogue intends to strengthen the bi-regional cooperation and integration of Pacific countries in the activities of the 7th Framework Programme and to support the renewed EU-Pacific development partnership.

The conference includes a practical training on FP7 issues, key-note speeches from science and policy representatives, thematic workshops on environment, in particular climate change adaptation in relation to different aspects (e.g. water, agriculture, fisheries, natural hazards), good examples of (bi-lateral and FP7) S&T cooperation projects, meetings with high-level EU-delegates, matchmaking between researchers/representatives of development organizations, and provision of key information on S&T systems in the Pacific. The date of the conference connects to a global water event in Europe - the 6th World Water Forum in France (12th-17th March).

The conference addresses the participation of a high-level audience of science and technology experts as well as stakeholders such as regional research and development organizations, policy makers from the EU and member states, National Contact Points (NCPs), further donors such as multi-lateral and national development organizations, foundations. The conference will be organized by DLR in collaboration with core consortium members.
