About Us

FEMIA is a regional association and a think tank that mobilizes experts from different disciplines and backgrounds across the Euro-Mediterranean region aiming to promote and implement innovative actions towards sustainable development and well-being. FEMIA was created in 2012 by a group of practitioners who have been involved in several EU-funded initiatives and wanted to continue their work beyond the duration of a specific project.

FEMIA members are committed to the realization of an inclusive Euro-Mediterranean knowledge-based economy and society by strengthening the links between academia, policy makers, industry and civil society.


FEMIA’s activities are based on three principles:


  • valorizing th e human skills and capital of young and established experts;
  • supporting knowledge circulation and exchanges;
  • facilitating dialogue between different stakeholders and supporting them for  action.
