Rabat Morocco

The first meeting of the advocacy panel for a political agenda on innovation in Morocco will be held on 13 April 2018 in Rabat.

This high level meeting is organised by R&D Maroc with the support of ANIMA Investment Network in the frame of THE NEXT SOCIETY, an initiative funded by the European Union that aims to support innovation in the Mediterranean, with selected national and international innovation stakeholders.

Acting as a Task Force at national level, the goal of THE NEXT SOCIETY Advocacy Panel is to oversee innovation roadmap formulation, its implementation, evaluation and update, with the objective of:


- Strengthening the national Innovation system,
- Fostering coordination among actors involved,
- Improving concrete instruments of the innovation policy.


The first meeting of this Advocacy Panel will include presentations of ranking analysis and enterprise surveys as well as international best practices on innovation and competitiveness.


The priority policy measures to support innovation and competitiveness decided by the Advocacy Panel members, will be implemented thanks to technical assistance missions conducted by international experts.


To reach its goals, and guarantee a sustainable and inclusive approach, the Advocacy Panel will be composed of EU and Palestinian private sector representatives and investors, innovation stakeholders, relevant Ministries and their agencies, the Office of the European Union Representative as well as academic experts.
