GÉANT partners up with Union for the Mediterranean (UfM) to support the digital economy in the Mediterranean

January 27th, 2016

GÉANT has recently been given official recognition by the Union for the Mediterranean (UfM) of its role in R&E networking and invited to use its expertise to help UfM implement its digital economy agenda in the Southern Mediterranean. GÉANT’s role was confirmed in Barcelona last December at the first meeting of UfM’s new Digital Economy Working Group (DEWoG) set up to implement recommendations of the 2014 UfM Summit of Digital Economy Ministers to accelerate the development of the digital economy for Euro-Mediterranean citizens, consumers and businesses. As well as regulatory and commercial initiatives, the importance of high-speed connectivity for all Southern Mediterranean countries with GÉANT was expressly recognised and this is to be built upon through DEWoG’s activities.

Israel is a member of this intergovernmental institution bringing together 43 countries and from the 28 EU member states, the European Commission and 15 Southern Mediterranean countries to promote cooperation in the Euro-Mediterranean region.
