Contributing to tackle societal challenges that EU-Pacific countries are facing or that have a global character in relationship to health (WP1), agriculture and marine (WP2) and resource use (WP3) activities through:
- Understanding the factors, mechanisms and obstacles that underlie innovation processes in the Pacific Island Countries and Territories (PICTs); focusing on the role EU scientific and technological cooperation performs in the successful generation of new products and processes and of novel forms of collective organization.
- Strengthening EU-Pacific science and technology cooperation and networks through the joint identification, promotion and monitoring of areas of environmentally sustainable innovative activity and through improving coordination and synergy between joint efforts, in areas where EU knowledge and technology transfer can be adapted to local conditions, and vice versa, while having the highest economic impact.
- Identifying policy recommendations that will stimulate academic, private and public sector, non-governmental organizations and other relevant stakeholders both from the EU and the Pacific to engage and cooperate in innovation processes and that will ensure that sustainable innovation objectives are achieved and to support cooperation on issues related to framework conditions for research and innovation (e.g. Intellectual Property Rights protection, standards, regulations, access to innovation financing) with the view to establish a 'level playing field' and facilitate the deployment of innovative products and services.
