 THE EUROPEAN NEIGHBOURHOOD AND PARTNERSHIP INSTRUMENT   

Members of Myeuronet Network participate, as leader or partner, in several international projects financed by the European Union, the Italian Ministry for Economic Development or other international organisations. By participating in these initiatives, we ensure our customers a variety of high added value services related to vocational training, internationalisation of enterprises and entrepreneurship of young people.

Our most important mission is to monitor and analyse EU policies and funding programmes, to draft EU project and tenders, to define international partnerships, to implement and report projects to the EU. Currently, we are managing projects in the field of entrepreneurship, education, tourism, cooperation, development, food.

Agricultural policies implemented by Mediterranean countries in recent decades have led to their increasing dependence on imports and to their total exposure to volatile international markets. The “Arab Spring” has highlighted the urgency of improving food security as well as the necessity to achieve a more integrated development of territories. LACTIMED proposes a new approach to address these challenges and focuses on the dairy sector, in which the needs are particularly pronounced and comparable to those of European countries. Thus, the project aims to foster the production and distribution of typical and innovative dairy products in the Mediterranean by organising local value chains, supporting producers in their development projects and creating new markets for their products. In the end, it will lead to the creation of the Mediterranean network of dairy clusters.

At Mediterranean level, tourism has often led many countries and regions to develop the industry in a competitive way rather than in a cooperative manner. For obvious climatic reasons but also due the role played by tour operators, Mediterranean tourism destinations have based their growth essentially on a “sun and sea” vision and developed strategies aimed at maximizing short term profits instead of addressing the needs and expectations of customers and residents. In this sense, there is a real need to adopt and introduce new consumer models translated into environmentally friendly tourism products, respecting natural resources and diversifying the seasonal nature of tourism demand. UMAYYAD contributes to this objective by promoting sustainable tourism based on the synergies derived from the design of a cross-border itinerary between 6 countries sharing common history and cultural background.
