May 29, 2018
The Moroccan capital will host two major regional events this summer: The IEMed Youth Forum and the EuroMeSCo Annual Conference, which will be held respectively on 11 July, and 12-13 July in Rabat. The Youth Forum’s theme, “A youth agenda for Euro-Mediterranean research”, will explore avenues to further stimulate greater Euro-Mediterranean youth research and mobility.
Conceived and funded by the IEMed, the Youth Forum, gathering over 40 participants from over 10 countries,offers a unique opportunity to debate and exchange with policy makers and other young experts on key issues in the Euro-Mediterranean area and to contribute to policy shaping in the region.
The Forum aims to build and empower a thriving community of young researchers in Euro- Mediterranean affairs and increase the visibility of their work. Organised around a plenary session and two parallel working sessions, the forum offers a chance to share experiences and issue concrete proposals on relevant topics.
IEMed has issued a call for participants to select up to 15 young researchers and students from the Euro-Mediterranean region toparticipate and intervene actively in the Youth Forum, and to take part in the EuroMeSCo Annual Conference “Changing Euro-Mediterranean Lenses”, gathering over 120 stakeholders, including researchers, academics, national and regional policy makers and practitioners. The deadline to send applications is on 11 June.
