CPSBB participated in online round table initiated by AERAP
On 16.11.2022 CPSBB participated in an online round table “Africa-EU Research Infrastructures”, organized by the Africa-Europe Science and Innovation Cooperation Platform (AERAP) . The attendance of CPSBB was at the invitation of Mr. Declan Kirrane, Chairman and Managing Director of the Science Summit at the United Nations General Assembly.
The adoption of a program as a result of a dialogue between industry, research institutes and public sector from all EU member states and African nations was a major topic of discussion. The program should align priorities across a range of scientific topics with the priorities of scientists and industrial representatives.
AERAP is a stakeholder forum convened to set priorities for science and innovation cooperation between Africa and Europe. It provides a framework for industrial and academic stakeholders to define action plans for research in a wide range of areas that will be essential to address common global challenges. This framework enhances major scientific research and technological progress that will drive socio-economic development and competitiveness in both Africa and Europe.
