Commissioner addresses the EU-Africa Joint Experts Group-8

"We greatly appreciate South Africa's support for the High Level Policy Dialogue on Science, Technology and Innovation. This support is crucial, particularly in view of the organisation of the next EU-Africa STI Senior Officials' meeting."



Cape Town, 6 November 2012


The European Commission is committed, as you know, to increasing support for the implementation of the science component of the Joint Africa-EU Strategy. More specifically, we are very committed to the success of the 8th Partnership on Science, Information Society and Space adopted by the EU and Africa at the Joint Summit in Lisbon in December 2007.
