EuroAfrica-ICT initiative

The EuroAfrica-ICT initiative aims at supporting the development of policy dialogues and at strengthening cooperation links on ICT research between Europe and sub-Saharan Africa. The initiative has been launched in 2005 with the support of the European Commission (DG Information Society and Media) through its FP6 and FP7 research funding programmes. A new phase of this initiative was launched in January 2010 for a 2-year period, following the selection of the EuroAfrica-ICT.org project at FP7/ICT Call 4.
The activities to be developed during the next two years include:

  • The identification of ICT policy and research priorities, from which recommendations for future cooperation programmes and projects will be derived,
  • The organization of cooperation events in Europe and Africa: concertation meetings targeting the development of synergies between national and international cooperation initiatives, awareness and thematic workshops mainly aiming at connecting research organizations from both regions, and cooperation forums focusing particularly on policy and research priorities,
  • The provision of support and guidance services to research organizations interested in connecting together and developing joint research projects in the ICT field: active online community of researchers from Europe and Africa, database of African excellence research centres, proactive helpdesk services, etc.,
  • The development of various dissemination activities supporting all other activities and maximizing the overall impact of the initiative.
