The first edition of INNOVACT comes to an end. Together with our partners in the four INNOVACT areas in Latin America, we are planning the INNOVACT Closing Conferences. In these Conferences, the jointly elaborated Action Plans will be discussed with local, regional and national stakeholders interested in cross-border cooperation, innovation and economic development. Ideas and sketches of future pilot projects will also be presented. Experts in European cross-border cooperation, innovation governance and value chain development (smart agriculture, fishfarming, tourism, energy, cacao) will share their experience with the participants and answer practical questions.

The dates for the Conferences are:

Ecuador-Columbia: 30-31 October 2018 – Lago Agrio, Ecuador

Colombia-Peru: 6-7 November 2018 – Iquitos, Peru

Mexico-Guatemala: 13-14 November 2018 – Guatemala City

Peru-Chile: 22 November – Tacna, Peru

More details will be published over the next days.
