IST-Africa - ICT-39 Opportunities for Africa - EU Research Cooperation

Room 1.05, 21/10/2015 (14:00-14:45)


ICT-2015 provides a unique platform to raise awareness of successful cooperation between African and European researchers under FP7 and the ICT39-2015 Call of Horizon 2020, and look forward to potential areas for research and innovation cooperation under the 2016 – 2017 Work Programme, and specifically the upcoming ICT-39 Call.

This networking session aims to a) raise awareness of current ICT-related national priorities and research capacity in African Member States, b) share a snapshot of results of African - European Cooperation under FP7 and the H2020 ICT-39-2015 Call, and c) provide the opportunity for researchers to gain insight into targeted issues well aligned with the objectives of the ICT-39 Call under the 2016 - 2017 Work Programme.

This will provide a framework to identify African partners with relevant expertise and research track record, as well as research areas with significant potential for socio-economic impact in the target countries.
