MED-SPRING D8.3 and D8.5 - Recommendations for strengthening the networking among Observatories

Internationalization and multi-polarization of research open a critical avenue to ’observatories’ that describe the many aspects of global challenges, which need to be addressed with interdisciplinary teams and a long-term vision. The Mediterranean Observatories are now sufficiently numerous to create a diversified and heterogeneous institutional landscape. These differences need to be respected, and complementarities highlighted. They are both the result of thematic focus and institutional history.
