CIRCLE-2 MED is the oldest standing CIRCLE research funding sub-network. Dedicated to common research interests and needs in the Mediterranean basin, it was responsible for the launch of the first CIRCLE joint call for research proposals back in 2007.
The call focused on "Integrated Coastal Zones and Water Management" and received a very positive reaction by the climate change research community in several Mediterranean countries. It also represented a very particular step forward in terms of management of transnational joint ERA-Net calls by granting funds to non-European countries around the Mediterranean basin.
Since 2009 CIRCLE-2 MED has a dedicated webpage directed at the research community funded under this network and at all those interested in climate change research and policy in the Mediterranean. CIRCLE-2 MED is currently supported by research funding organisations from France, Galicia (Spain), Italy, Israel and Portugal.
