The selected individuals will participate in two fact-finding missions, one in Italy (April 2023) and another in Spain (July 2023).

The winning profiles were selected from nearly 100 applications received and represent a good balance between industry and academic backgrounds.

The aim of these mobility vouchers is to provide support to winners by giving them the opportunity to visit and meet with different clusters in Mediterranean partner countries that deal with Water, Energy, Food Nexus. This will allow them to gain access to knowledge relevant to their sector at both national and international levels.

These missions present an opportunity for exchange of best practices and to identify cross-border cooperation opportunities among experts in the field of Nexus. They also allow for exploration of potential strategic partnerships by collaborating and networking with other participants across borders in the Mediterranean, in order to understand current advances, future perspectives, competitive advantages, and possible interactions between EU and MPC partners.

The detailed program for the two missions in Italy (April 2023) and Spain (July 2023) is currently being finalized.

NEX-LABS is looking forward to seeing the results of these fact-finding missions and continuing to support innovation in the Mediterranean.
