For the first time a joint information day on R&I opportunities in Latin America (LA), Caribbean & Europe will be organized in Brussels, Belgium on 24 November 2015.

The info day is a joint activity of so called ‘BILAT’ projects which promote European cooperation with: Brazil - B.BICE+, Argentina - ABEST III, Chile - CEST+I and Mexico - EU-MEX INNOVA, funded by the European Union under FP7. The event will also count on the participation of Panamá and ERANet LAC. The aim of the encounter is to enhance EU-Latin American Science and Innovation cooperation.


Latin America (LA) is one of the emerging regions in technology, innovation and R&D expenditures. Many European researchers and institutions have developed strong research links with LA researchers and their institutions. However, some opportunities within LA national funding programmes are not well-known in Europe, and European researchers and research managers may not be familiar with the specific application processes & grants management procedures required by LA national research funding agencies. Therefore this workshop will:

  • Promote awareness of LA national research funding opportunities for European researchers with specific focus on Argentina, Brazil, Chile, Mexico and Panamá
  • Strengthen European institutions’ expertise in applying for and managing LA research funds
  • Provide case studies of research collaboration between LA and European institutions
  • Grant firsthand information on the 2. ERANet-LAC Joint Call to be launched in December 2015

The workshop addresses the whole European research community (funding agencies, researchers & research managers, administrators). Registration for the workshop will be free of charge.

Pre-registration is required here – until 15 November 2015

Further information on workshop, agenda and speakers will soon be available on B.BICE+ website.
