EU International Urban Cooperation Latin America and the Caribbean (IUC-LAC) Project

EU International Urban Cooperation Latin America and the Caribbean (IUC-LAC) Project
From now on, every 1st of the month we will be announcing the new Latin American region available for European counterparts to apply for pairing. This open call will close every 21st at 23:59, so that the IUC-LAC experts have some days to evaluate the candidacies and so that those not chosen may have time to apply for the next one.

That said, as from February 1st 2018, the competition call for EU Regions with an interest to pair with RAP-E (Colombia) will be formally open. Please see its profile at: www.regional-coop.com. Each month there will be a new call in the same website.

The aim of the call is to initiate and facilitate a partnership between the central administrative region of Colombia composed by the Cundinamarca, Boyacá, Meta, Tolima and Bogotá D. C states, and the selected EU regions to develop new business opportunities via mutual learning and innovation, including the development or implementation of a Regional Innovation Smart Specialisation Strategy (RIS3). RAP-E has more than 14 million on inhabitants, and a GDP per capita of 4.693 Euros (conversion date: 2017). Its Executive Director formally represents RAPE in the IUC-LAC Project.

The IUC-LA project will facilitate the selected EU Region a pairing process with RAP-E in order to develop a joint roadmap for collaboration that shall lead to new business opportunities. RAP-E has already identified priority sectors for investments in terms of RTDI (Research, Technology, Development and Innovation), building on existing competences and future opportunities. These are: tourism, agroindustry, and water resources. In this context RAP-E wants to know the experiences of the EU in regional articulation in terms of making decisions for the planning, management, and execution of policies, programs, and / or regional projects of the prioritized sectors.

We would like to remind you that we have already successfully paired four European Regions with three Latin American ones: Cantabria (Spain) with Chihuahua (Mexico), Lazio (Italy) with Bogotá-Cundinamarca (Colombia), Bielsko-Biala (Poland) with CIOESTE (Brazil), and Friuli-Venezia Giulia (Italy) with Córdoba (Argentina). In the future we are foreseeing the pairing of another 2 Colombian regions, 3 Chilean, 2-3 Argentinian, 1-2 Brazilian, 2-3 Mexican? 15 more in total.

You may find in our website the complete profile of RAPE (Colombia). You could use the on-line application form or the form-file to show your interest in cooperating with them. In case you would like further information, do not hesitate to contact us.
