Titre : TUNTWIN : TWINNING TOWARDS ADVANCED ANALYTICAL STRATEGIES FOR CAPACITY BUILDING AND INNOVATION FOR THE TUNISIAN ECONOMY : APPLICATION TO THREE INDUSTRIAL KEY SECTORS IN TUNISIA

Promoting economic development in Tunisia’s environment, food and health sectors

Code du projet : ID : 952306

Durée : 1 January 2021 // 31 December 2023

Descriptif
Environment, food and health sectors play an important role in the development of both European and Tunisian economy and legislation. With this in mind, the EU-funded TUNTWIN project aims to boost research excellence and knowledge transfer regarding mass spectrometry and synchrotron techniques applied to these three sectors. Its focus will be organic contaminants, element speciation, light and non-traditional isotopes, nanoparticles and food traceability, authenticity and safety. To achieve its goal, the project will establish a transnational cooperation environment and develop a sustainable framework for research capacity building, research management, international networking, finance and administration. This work will play a role in furthering the economic development of the Tunisian environment, food and health sectors.

Objectifs
TUNTWIN will strengthen research excellence and knowledge transfer of INRAP regarding mass spectrometry, and synchrotron techniques applied to environment, food and health sectors with a special attention to organic contaminants, element speciation, light and non-traditional isotopes, nanoparticles and food traceability, authenticity and safety. These sectors are of high economic benefit and relevance for the development of both EU and Tunisian economy and legislation. To accomplish this, TUNTWIN will create an environment to transnational cooperation and develop a sustainable framework of research capacity building, research management, finance and administration, international networking to enhance the sustainable expertise of Tunisian scientists and stakeholders. As a result, TUNTWIN will foster the economic development of Tunisian economy in the sectors of environment, food and health. Strengthening of INRAP’s staff will be developed by EU partners of established scientific excellence in target topics, through 6 case studies, with proven record of experience. TUNTWIN is structured into 5 work packages for 36 months, including : coordination ; capacity building (through trainings, mobilities program, organization of summer schools, exploratory workshops, open days and stakeholders-oriented events) ; definition of new research avenues and approaches ; networking and governmental support ; and communication through awareness raising and knowledge co-creation. As a result of proposed strategic priorities and actions by INRAP, a series of 4 targeted aims have been defined to determine the impact of TUNTIWN on the increase research excellence and critical mass ; support institutional networking and reputation increase ; develop a knowledge transference network ; and improve the analytical service quality in Tunisia. Such aims will be monitored through >25 KPI supporting the establishment of a short-, medium- and long-term sustainability strategy for INRAP
