With the world’s highest concentration of marine species, the most varied vegetation types and widely different geological subsoil/nature (dry forests, humid forests, costs and marine environment, this area is of very special scientific interest. For these reasons it is the ideal place in virtually every regards to study one of [today’s] biggest global challenges: adapting ecosystem to climate change that in the end might impact food products, water supply and urban development.

Opportunities for European Researchers


European researchers and scientists have the opportunity to participate in seminars and thematic workshops to single out the areas of interest to carry out scientific and technological research in this part of the world. As it is foreseen a selection of researchers and scientists with specializations in those areas of activities to be developed in the abovementioned geographical area, in some cases travel expenses will be reimbursed.


European researchers and scientists may participate in the activities of the project experts working group (Pace-Net think tank ) that are to be established in order to identify and meet scientific needs and priority research thematic areas of the Pacific Area.
For further info you may contact the project manager (see e-mail addresses at the bottom the page).


Additional information is available on Pace-Net (Pacific Europe NETWORK for Science and Technology) website:
Moreover, you can download project online newsletters to learn the results and events of the project.

Two catalogues have been issued within the scope of PACE-Net:


A Compendium that portrays the situational analysis of Pacific research and innovation system mapping research priorities shared with Europe and the title is:

- Pacenet – Pacific Europe Network for Science & Technology, Outcomes Compendium


And a Booklet that presents the profiles of about 140 researchers and stakeholders, who collaborated in the project to identify scientific and technological priorities between Europe and the Pacific: - Booklet PACIFIC & EUROPEAN KEY STAKEHOLDERS at PACE-Net EU-Pacific Bi-Regional Dialogue Platforms

On the 14th of March 2013 the PACE-NET Project concluded with the event ‘PACE-Net* Key Stakeholder Conference Connecting Research and Innovation for Development in the Pacific’. It is possible to download the press release of the event by clicking the following link



APRE has had an active role in the project, so it can be of help to those who wish to receive information about opportunities for scientific research in this area of ​​the world.
