The regional network for the Americas comprises STAR-IDAZ partners from Brazil (Regional Network Coordinator), Argentina, Mexico, the United States and Canada. The aim of the network is the same as that of the STAR-IDAZ project (sharing information and improved collaboration) but at a regional level.

Representatives from non-STAR-IDAZ partner countries in the Americas will be invited to attend the separate regional meetings.
