Supporting Policy Dialogues and Strengthened Cooperation with sub-Saharan Africa

Project description

International Cooperation

The EUROAFRICA-ICT.ORG project is defined in full continuity and builds on the substantial results obtained and the important momentum created by two previous projects: the FP6/IST START and the FP7/ICT EuroAfriCa-ICT projects.
It is on this basis and on the conclusions of the "1st Euro-Africa Cooperation Forum on ICT research" successfully organised in March 2009 in Brussels by the EuroAfriCa-ICT project, that the present project is proposed.
Project activities will be developed over a 24-month period:• Policy and research priorities will be explored through an approach involving all interested stakeholders, and recommendations for future cooperation opportunities will be derived from them,• cooperation events will be organised in Europe and in Africa, synchronised whenever possible with policy dialogue meetings, in order to provide inputs to these meetings, facilitate the development of synergies with other programmes and initiatives (including the CAAST-NET project), involve key stakeholders (such as the ETPs and JTIs in the ICT area), fine tune priorities, etc. Among these cooperation events: the 2010 and 2011 editions of the "Euro-Africa Cooperation Forum on ICT research",• Support will be provided to European and African organisations in their efforts to connect and develop joint projects (through an active online community of researchers from both regions, a database of African excellence research centers, proactive help desk services, etc.),• Dissemination activities will support all other activities in order to ensure the highest overall impact to the project.
The EUROAFRICA-ICT project is:• A focused, result-oriented and ambitious project, while requiring a reasonable amount of resources,• Presented by a limited partnership, offering all skills to develop planned activities and having already worked together, hence being efficient since the start of the project,• Supported by a high number of leading ICT organisations from both regions
