EU-Latin American Sustainability Research Consortium (EULA-SRC)

European Union (EU) and Latin American countries share a long tradition of cooperation in research. This is especially so in the field of sustainable development, a rapidly growing area, especially taking into account the need for action to implement the UN Sustainable Development Goal (SDGs) and tackle issues such as depletion of ecosystems and climate change.

Both EU and Latin American universities are constantly trying to enhance their research profiles, and seeking new opportunities for collaboration. In particular, they have been working together in respect of joint publications and research projects.

As an attempt to further develop the research aspect, and catalyse new joint initiatives in the field of sustainable development, the "EU-Latin American Sustainability Research Consortium" (EULA-SRC) is being created, as a spin-off of the Inter-University Sustainable Research Programme (IUSDRP) 

As the title implies, EULA-SRC is an infra-structure in the context of which scientists from EU and Latin American countries may apply for national and international funding for sustainability-related projects in an integrated way.
The IUSDRP office at HAW Hamburg will coordinate this initiative.

Operationally, EULA-SRC will be advantageous to members in two main ways:

1. Some members may lead bids and invite some appropriate members of the Consortium to join them as partners, whenever it suits us

2. Other Consortium members may join as partners

Both approaches  means that EU and Latin American researchers will work together and may increase- qualitatively and quantitatively- the number of scientific projects they may engage on.

There are no costs involved, and membership at EULA-SRC is free of charges. However, it is expected that members are prepared to invest the time needed in the preparation of research projects on sustainable development, and be willing to interact with partners in the Consortium.
