Fatma Ashour, RMEI President

Dear RMEI Members and Colleagues,

Since its establishment in 1997, RMEI has maintained a vision of developing the Mediterranean Basin through networking, scientific and academic cooperation, fostering research and higher education training.

As you are aware, our activities have been slowed down since March 2020 because of the COVID-19 global pandemic. This has greatly affected our personal and professional lives as well as our communication together.

However, the coming new year is showing good potential for better conditions especially after trials for vaccine release.

Together we can compensate for the unusual year by following up on ongoing projects and motivating working groups to establish collaborative research. 

Also, we would like to reinforce our ties with our members and listen to one another’s ideas to help each other progress. Moreover, we intend to discuss all your thoughts and recommendations to reach RMEI goals for the growth of our beloved Mediterranean.

We need to increase cooperation, to share experiences and methods between members of the network.

This may be done through:

  • Continuous training for our students and summer schools
  • Acting as knowledge provider to stakeholders to bridge the gap between Research, Education and Industry.
  • Encouraging development in all fields within the Mediterranean such as sustainable and social development and gender equity.
  • Setting up awards for proposed themes to incentivize universities, students, researchers.

Finally, I’m confident that together we can strengthen our cooperation and overcome the challenges ahead.

                                                                                                      Fatma Ashour, RMEI President

Chers RMEI Membres et collègues,

Depuis sa création en 1997, le RMEI a maintenu une vision de développement du bassin méditerranéen à travers la mise en réseau, la coopération scientifique et universitaire, en favorisant la recherche et la formation dans l'enseignement supérieur.

Comme vous le savez, nos activités ont été ralenties depuis Mars 2020 à cause de la pandémie mondiale de COVID-19. Cela a grandement affecté notre vie personnelle et professionnelle ainsi que notre communication ensemble.

Cependant, la nouvelle année à venir montre un bon potentiel pour de meilleures conditions, en particulier après des essais de libération de vaccins.

Ensemble, nous pouvons compenser cette année inhabituelle en faisant le suivi des projets en cours et en motivant les groupes de travail à établir une recherche collaborative.

Nous souhaitons également renforcer nos liens avec nos membres et nous écouter les uns les autres pour nous aider à progresser. De plus, nous avons l'intention de discuter de toutes vos réflexions et recommandations pour atteindre les objectifs du RMEI pour la croissance de notre bien-aimée Méditerranée.

Nous devons accroître la coopération, partager les expériences et les méthodes entre les membres du réseau.

Cela peut être fait par :

• Formation continue pour nos étudiants et écoles d'été

• Agir en tant que fournisseur de connaissances auprès des parties prenantes pour combler le fossé entre la recherche, l'éducation et l'industrie.

• Encourager le développement dans tous les domaines de la Méditerranée tels que le développement durable et social et l'égalité des sexes.

• Mise en place de prix pour les thèmes proposés pour inciter les universités, les étudiants, les chercheurs.


Enfin, je suis convaincu qu’ensemble, nous pouvons renforcer notre coopération et surmonter les défis à venir.


أعضاء الشبكة المتوسطية لمدراس المهندسين و الزملاء الاعزاء

منذ إنشائها في عام 1997 ، حافظت الشبكة المتوسطية لمدراس المهندسين على رؤية لتطوير حوض البحر الأبيض المتوسط ​​من خلال التواصل والتعاون العلمي والأكاديمي وتعزيز البحث والتدريب
كما تعلمون ، فقد تباطأت أنشطتنا منذ مارس 2020 بسبب جائحة COVID-19 العالمي أثرت بشكل كبير على حياتنا الشخصية والمهنية وكذلك تواصلنا معًا.

ومع ذلك ، فإن العام الجديد القادم يظهر إمكانات جيدة لظروف أفضل خاصة بعد تجارب إطلاق اللقاح.

معًا يمكننا تعويض العام غير العادي من خلال متابعة المشاريع الجارية وتحفيز مجموعات العمل على إنشاء بحث تعاوني.

أيضًا ، نود تعزيز علاقاتنا مع أعضائنا والاستماع إلى أفكار بعضنا البعض للمساعدة على التقدم. علاوة على ذلك ، نعتزم مناقشة جميع أفكاركم وتوصياتكم للوصول إلى أهداف RMEI لنمو منطقة البحر الأبيض المتوسط ​​الحبيب.

يمكن القيام بذلك من خلال:

• التدريب المستمر لطلابنا والمدارس الصيفية

• العمل كمصدر للمعرفة لأصحاب المصلحة لسد الفجوة بين البحث والتعليم والصناعة.

• تشجيع التنمية في جميع المجالات في منطقة البحر الأبيض المتوسط ​​مثل التنمية المستدامة والاجتماعية والمساواة بين الجنسين.

• وضع جوائز للموضوعات المقترحة لتحفيز الجامعات والطلاب والباحثين.


أخيرًا ، أنا واثق من أنه يمكننا معًا تعزيز تعاوننا والتغلب على التحديات المقبلة.

TARGET means TAke a Reflexive approach to Gender Equality for institutional Transformation. TARGET will contribute to the advancement of gender equality in research and innovation (R&I) by supporting a reflexive gender equality policy in seven Gender Equality Innovating Institutions (GEIIs) in the Mediterranean basin - including research performing organizations (RPOs), research funding organizations (RFOs) and a network of universities.


Anastasia Zabaniotou explains how Target project was a very useful tool in implementing a gender equality strategy at the Mediterranean Network of Engineering Schools (RMEI)

RMEI is involved in this European research program that will benefit from RMEI university network to enlarge the statistical surveys.

The scientific coordinator of the program for RMEI is Pr Anastasia ZABANIOTOU from Aristotle Univ. of Thessaloniki (GE). The Legal Entity Administrative Representative (LEAR) is Pr Olivier BOIRON from Ecole Centrale Marseille.


The Gender Equality (GE) is recognized by the board of RMEI as one of the main and challenging objectives of the network for the next coming years. GE is one of the 17 Sustainable Development Goals of UNESCO for the period 2017-2030.


This project  has  received    funding    from the    European    Union’s Horizon    2020 research    and    innovation    programme under    grant agreement No741672 : TARGET - Taking a Reflexive approach to Gender Equality for institutional Transformation.
