ENSOCIO-LAC projectStrategic, Sustainable R&I Cooperation with Latin America (Climate Action, Resource Efficiency and Raw Materials)

The ENSOCIO-LA project is a Coordination & Support Action funded under ENV.2013.6.5-4 Knowledge platforms, networking and uptake of research results for more strategic international R&I cooperation.

As a Coordination Action, the ENSOCIO-LA project aims at establishing sustainable and integrated research and innovation cooperation between the EU and Latin American Countries in the environmental field, namely in climate change, resource efficiency and raw materials; ENSOCIO-LA will also help improve dissemination and the exploitation of research results in this area by different user groups. This will be achieved through networking and twinning of existing multilateral and bilateral projects funded by different sources, through the development of efficient interaction schemes between science, industry and users and the joint elaboration of future research priorities and joint activities. ENSOCIO-LA will provide a network of networks.
