"EULARINET (Co-ordinating Latin America Research and Innovation NETworks) goal is to strengthen bi-regional dialogue on S&T between EU Member States (MS) and Latin American Partner Countries (LAPC) at policy, programme and institutional (research entities) level, thus contributing to a three fold objective: a) promote the joint identification, setting up, implementation and monitoring of mutual interest priorities in following versions of future work programmes across the Specific Programmes of FP7. b) joint definition of S&T co-operation policies c) support and stimulate the participation of LAPC in FP7 EULARINET will establish a co-ordination platform bringing together the key EU and LA policy makers and programme managers, as well as representatives of research entities, universities and the private sector, eminent researchers and representatives of the civil society, to set up dialogue fora at different levels, leading to the identification of S&T and defining specific activities to promote, support and stimulate participation of LA researchers in FP7. As political background, EULARINET will consider and develop the on going EU – LA dialogue on S&T, since the Río Summit in June 1999, the ALCUE´s Brasilia Action Plan for S&T Co-operation, the Guadalajara Declaration to set up the EU – LA Knowledge Area and finally the Vienna Summit in 2006 and the conclusions of the preparatory Senior Officials meeting in Salzburg, as a basis to go further in the practical implementation and updating of the existent policy guidelines."
