The 5+5 Dialogue

The Western Mediterranean Forum, commonly referred to as 5+5 Dialogue, comprises Algeria, France, Italy, Libya, Malta, Mauritania, Morocco, Portugal, Spain and Tunisia.
As a Trans-Mediterranean initiative, the “raison d'être” of the Dialogue 5+5 is to ensure closer cooperation between the five EU Member States and the five Arab Maghreb Countries through political dialogue and cooperation and by encouraging more effective resource management as a means of strengthening interdependence and regional development.

The main objectives of the Western Mediterranean Forum for Higher Education, Research and Innovation are structured into specific activities that are divided into three main axes (Networking, Research and Innovation, Higher Education).
