Enhancing Scientific Cooperation between the European Union and Central America
ENLACE (Enhancing Scientific Cooperation between the European Union and Central America) is a project funded by the European Commission, under the Seventh Framework Programme for Research and Technological Development - International Cooperation.
The project ENLACE aims at supporting the bi-regional dialogue between the EU and the Central America Countries and includes a set of activities to enhance the networking among EU and Central America researchers through the organization of S&T dialogues, to identify research priorities of mutual interest and to raise awareness on FP7 in Central America mainly by setting up the network of FP7 National Contact Point in Central America.
The consortium includes 14 multi-skilled partners, 6 from the EU and 8 from the Central America, regrouping multiple international stakeholders (partners from research, industry, government and civil society) for research actions, that will ensure the fulfillment of ENLACE's objectives.
