The proposal evaluation meeting took place at 13.10.2015 in Tunis, for the selection of one research centre/laboratory from each social challenge
Resource efficiency particularly Water,
High Quality Affordable Food and
Energy particularly renewable energies.
Research centres/laboratories were asked to specify their goals and gaps, identify own strengths and propose its approach for reforms at the level of innovation management capacity. In three pilot projects a adapted plan for improving innovation capacities will be developed for each research centre/laboratory beneficiary of the IMC-RC program.
