One of the objectives of the program and therefore of the MENFRI project is the improved coordination and awareness between related projects and initiatives, making better use of existing knowledge and resources. The lack of knowledge among other parties’ activities leads to effort duplication, lack of progress and therefore to a waste of economic resources.

MENFRI belongs to a cluster of EU funded FP7-INCO projects supporting the link between research and innovation in the Eastern Partnership and in the Mediterranean countries. The cluster builds on regular exchange and joint coordinated activities of the projects.

This project has received funding from the European Union’s Seventh Framework Programme for research, technological development and demonstration under grant agreement n° 609542.
