CAAST-Net Plus partners and stakeholders meeting

24-26 June 2013. Addis Ababa. CAAST-Net Plus held its first partner and stakeholder meeting. CAAST-Net Plus objectives encourage more and better bi-regional STI cooperation for enhanced outcomes around topics of mutual interest, and particularly in relation to the global societal challenges of climate change, food security and health.

CAAST-Net Plus actions rely on bi-regional dialogue among stakeholders for gathering informed opinion and experience about the bi-regional cooperation process, formulating and disseminating it in such a way as to be admissible to the formal bi-regional STI policy dialogue process and to programme owners.

Through informing the bi-regional policy dialogue for mutual learning and awareness, through building support for coordinated and innovative approaches to bilateral funding of bi-regional cooperation around global challenges, brokering the public-private relationship to foster improved uptake and translation of bi-regional research partnership outputs into innovative technologies, good and services, and through dedicated mechanisms to encourage bi-regional research partnerships, CAAST-Net Plus makes contributions to the quality and scope of the Africa-Europe STI relationship for mutual benefit.

See the workshop report 12/07/2013: Africa-EU research collaboration on climate change, food security and 
water linkages. An overview of emerging issues and potential research priorities.
