Although the priority in the education field continues to be the achievement of the Millennium Development Goals(MDGs), the European Union recognises the need to support higher education at ACP-wide level as a complement to each country’s specific assistance.
The European Commission finances a number of programmes in the area of higher education and research (€ 100 million) and new  programmes (additional € 150 million) are being developed.
New calls for proposals are planned for 2010.
The presentation will focus on:
The ongoing programmes in the areas of Higher Education and Science & Technology as well as Research.
Presentation of new programmes that arecurrently being developed.
