Building Europe-Africa Multi-Stakeholders Platform
The event will be focused on sharing outcomes from LEAP4FNSSA West Africa Workshop, from the 2nd Raising Awareness Event and the Stakeholder Engagement Week to contribute framing the proposed AU-EU Platform for R&I on Food Nutrition Security and Sustainable Agriculture (FNSSA).
Moreover, the event should contribute to expand the network of stakeholders by inviting them to join the on-building Platform. To this purpose, the event will:
- explain the International Research Consortium approach.
- raise awareness and interest from African and European stakeholders to join (or to express their interest to join) the platform.
The meeting will be targeted mainly to public/private funders and policy makers in R&I from Africa, and Europe. The event will also involve cooperation agencies, research institutions, research funding agencies, AU-EU projects coordinators, and the civil society at large, including entrepreneurs, farmers’ associations and other potential users and stakeholders. Young European and African entrepreneurs will also be invited.
The meeting is organized by the International Centre for Advanced Mediterranean Agronomic Studies – Mediterranean Agronomic Institute of Bari (CIHEAM-IAMB, Italy), in collaboration with the Ministry of High Education, Science and Research (MHESR, Egypt) and the Forum for Agricultural Research in Africa (FARA, Ghana)
