Energy, Water and Climate Change – building bridges between Europe and MENA
Date: From Monday 10 December 2012
To Wednesday 12 December 2012
Location: Hilton Hotel, Nicosia, Cyprus
The Cyprus Institute and the Deutsches Elektronen-Synchrotron together with other research institutions are organising the EWACC 2012- Building Bridges conference which will bring together a broad range of expertise – distinguished scientists from various research fields and backgrounds, the private sector, stakeholders, policy makers and high-level officials – to foster sustainable development by broadening and deepening the Euro-Mediterranean dialogue.
The conference builds on – and successfully combines two preceding events: the EWACC2010 and the Solar Energy for Science/Building Bridges conference in 2011. The first two days of the EWACC2012-Building Bridges conference will address climate change, fresh water availability and in particular energy security in the region. The third day will be devoted to seeking partnerships and ways to “Build Bridges”, between the Middle East, North Africa and Europe.
The planned outcome of the EWACC2012 – Building Bridges conference is a “Cyprus Declaration 2012” with recommendations on how to promote and implement an effective Euro-Mediterranean science and technology collaboration that addresses regional aspects of the grand challenges.
