The EuroMeSCo Youth Forum is part of the Euromed Young Researchers Lab, an initiative of the EuroMeSCo: Connecting the Dots project, co-funded by the European Union and the European Institute of the Mediterranean. The Euromed Young Researchers Lab aims to boost the research capacities of young experts across the Mediterranean, give visibility and recognition to their work, strengthen exchanges and stimulate research on issues of common interest, in particular in the fields of economic development, migration and security.
During this year’s Forum, 40 participants from across the Mediterranean and its neighbouring regions will meet in Barcelona to exchange with policy-makers, practitioners and other young experts on key issues in the Euro-Mediterranean area and contribute to policy shaping in the region. Participants will:
- Present their research proposals on economic development, migration and security with a green/digital nexus
- Benefit from capacity building sessions on infographics and how to write a policy brief
- Access remunerated publishing opportunities: authors of selected Concept Note will be asked to convert their proposals into Policy Briefs
Where and when? The Forum will take place in Barcelona in October 2021 (exact date will be announced soon)
