The stakeholder meeting will be held back-to-back with the two-day plenary session of the EU-Africa High Level Policy Dialogue (HLPD) on Science, Technology and Innovation, and will broadly address the topics currently discussed in the HLPD:
- Implementing the EU-Africa Research and Innovation Partnership on Food and Nutrition Security and Sustainable Agriculture (FNSSA);
- Developing the EU-Africa Research and Innovation Partnership on Climate Change and Sustainable Energy;
- Exploring horizontal policies of cooperation, such as ‘Research Fairness’and ‘Open Science’ and their potential added value to the two aforementioned EU-Africa R&I Partnerships.
The goal of the stakeholder meeting is to facilitate inclusive participation, cooperation and integration among all interested parties from Europe and Africa -from the public sector, private sector, foundations, funding agencies, research-performing organisations, academia and NGOs etc.- to discuss interactively on the topics described above and advance the Research and Innovation Partnerships together.
