Joint EU-LAC cooperation on digital transformation has led to the successful completion of the BELLA programme, which supported the construction of a new submarine fibre-optic cable linking Lisbon (Portugal) with Fortaleza (Brazil) as well as an onward terrestrial connection with several countries in the region. The new connection provides for the long-term interconnectivity needs of European and Latin American research and innovation communities, but its full potential has not been exploited so far.
The existing digital and ICT dialogues between the EU and Brazil, Mexico and Argentina as well as cooperation with the Pacific Alliance have resulted in agreements to increase cooperation in the area of R&I, and it is expected that the future EU-LAC Digital Dialogue will bring these commitments to a continental perspective, but the agreements made at a political level are still lacking a framework to make this cooperation possible on the ground. Proposals will aim at exploiting the potential of the newly established BELLA network and implement the outcomes of EU-LAC dialogues in relation to digitalisation and R&I.
