PRIMA – Partnership for R&I in the Mediterranean Area

The Partnership for Research and Innovation in the Mediterranean Area (PRIMA) is an Initiative launched by 19 Participating States (PS) located in the Mediterranean to “build research and innovation capacities and to develop knowledge and common innovative solutions for agro-food systems, to make them sustainable, and for integrated water provision and management in the Mediterranean area, to make those systems and that provision and management more climate resilient, efficient, cost-effective and environmentally and socially sustainable, and to contribute to solving water scarcity, food security, nutrition, health, well-being and migration problems upstream”.

With this aim, PRIMA Participating States have developed a long-term Strategic Research and Innovation Agenda (SRIA), representing the cornerstone in strengthening research and innovation efforts. The joint efforts will improve Mediterranean citizens’ health and livelihoods, encouraging economic growth, inducing more sustainable Mediterranean societies and stability. PRIMA SRIA is the reference document for all the actors involved in PRIMA towards implementing the initiative.
