The EU-LAC Foundation can establish a limited number of Strategic Partnerships with relevant actors from its Member Countries. The Strategic Partners have a specific field of action relevant to the bi-regional partnership in which they develop their activities. The Strategic Partners’ role is to dynamise, coordinate and, in a non-exclusive way, take a leading role in executing activities related to their field of expertise.
