MEDPRO – Mediterranean Prospects is a consortium of 17 highly reputed institutions from throughout the Mediterranean funded under the EU’s 7th Framework Program and coordinated by the Centre for European Policy Studies based in Brussels. At its core, MEDPRO explored the key challenges the countries in the Southern Mediterranean region (from Morocco to Turkey) will have to cope with in the next decades. To do so, MEDPRO undertook a prospective analysis building on a multi disciplinary approach of research in seven fields of study: geopolitics and governance; demography, health, ageing; management of environment and natural resources; energy and climate change mitigation; economic integration, trade, investment and sectoral analyses; financial services and capital markets; human capital, social protection, inequality and migration; scenario building and impact assessment; scenarios for regional integration and cooperation with the EU. By carrying out this work, MEDPRO aimed at delivering the best scientific underpinning for future policy decisions to be taken at both domestic and EU level within the European Neighborhood Policy (ENP) and the Union for the Mediterranean (UfM) frameworks.
