The ENPI Horizon 2020 Capacity Building/Mediterranean Environment Programme (H2020 CB/MEP) aims to support the implementation of the Horizon 2020 Initiative Road Map and Work Plan through capacity building and awareness raising activities, and to promote integration/mainstreaming of environment issues into other sector policies. It is also responsible for the proper coordination of the H2020 Steering Group and the three Sub-Groups and the overall enhanced visibility of Horizon 2020.
The mandate given to the Capacity Building Sub Group by the 2nd Meeting of the H2020 Steering Group (Tunis, 16 June 2008) was to identify areas within the scope of H2020 (urban waste water, municipal solid waste and industrial emissions) where regional capacity building would add value.
