The Mediterranean Science, Policy, Research & Innovation Gateway MED-SPRING project - is a coordination and support action (FP7 - INCO.2012-1.3/ Mediterranean Partner Countries). The project, built on the previous experience of the INCO.NET MIRA, but adapted to the new reality of the Euro-Mediterranean policy and the general orientations defined in the Euro-Mediterranean Conference of Barcelona (2-3 April 2012), is focused on three societal challenges (Energy, High Quality Affordable Food, and Scarcity of resources) and aims at tackling policy objectives by creating a dialogue and coordination platform of governmental institutions, research organisations, associations and civil society.
