Promoting ICT Dialogue and Cooperation with the MPC towards HORIZON 2020
MED-Dialogue is a Coordination and support action project co-funded by the European Commission under the FP7 Coordination and Support Action. The project will act as a bridge for a two-way cooperation between the Mediterranean partner countries and the European Commission. This 30 month project is led by IT Consult GmbH, and will support the dialogue between EU and MPC, raise awareness on the Horizon2020 first Calls and assist organisations in the region to increase their participation in the Programme. Also, it will support the preparation of the Horizon2020 work program 2016-17 by identifying the strengths and opportunities in the MPC for mutually beneficial cooperation. 
The consortium consists of 11 partners both from the EU and the MPC region. Four specialized SMEs (ATC-Greece, PLANET-Greece, IT Consult-Germany, Sigma Orionis-France) from EU will work together with seven MPC academia, governmental & associations (CNI-Tunisia, PSUT-Jordan, ISGP-Algeria, USMBA-Morocco, CNRS-Lebanon, PALAST-Palestine, MCIT-Egypt), all playing an influential role in the shaping of their National Research & development and Innovation policies.
ATC is responsible for the Networking and Dissemination activities of the project. 
The project started on January 2014 and has a duration of 30 months.
