EU-LAC cooperation

2010

The EU-CELAC Joint Initiative for Research and Collaboration (JIRI) is established, focusing on the enhancement of cooperation of science and research through bi-regional dialogue, encouraging mutual policy learning and ensuring cooperation.

2016

Six years later, within the Senior Official Meetings (SOMs), the Common Research Area (CRA) was adopted and incorporated on the Brussels Declaration, signed by the Head of States from the two regions on the eight bi-regional meeting. The CRA focuses on three pillars:

Increased mobility of researchers between the two regions

Promotion of access to research infrastructures of global interest to improve sharing of data and scientific excellence

Focus cooperation on jointly defined grand challenges to create critical mass

The declaration also points the strengthening of “cooperation by the implementation of the network on research and innovation (ALCUE NET) through strategic activities in articulation with other thematically related projects supporting policy dialogues, as well as the selection of jointly funded projects and the launching of a new call by the EU-funded networking project (ERA-NET-LAC) that brings together research funding agencies from both regions”.

2017

In March 2017 an EU-LAC Working Group on Research Infrastructures (EU-LAC WG RI) was created to impulse the development of the CRA as well as to support policy-making in the research infrastructure dimension and facilitate multilateral initiatives aimed at improve the use and development of research infrastructures amongst the two regions.
