European-African innovation collaboration boosted by Horizon Europe funding

European-African innovation collaboration boosted by Horizon Europe funding

In recognition of the increasing global importance of African research and innovation, and to provide the tool for the implementation of the recently adopted AU-EU Innovation Agenda the EU has now extended eligibility to a broader range of African organisations, allowing them to fully participate in Horizon Europe projects*. This decision is part of the EU’s efforts to foster stronger partnerships with African nations and promote knowledge exchange, as well as address global challenges together. The four priority areas of the AU-EU Innovation Agenda are: Public Health, Green Transition, Innovation & Technology, and Capacities for Science

 

This expansion of eligibility can open exciting opportunities for African researchers, universities, and institutions to collaborate with their European counterparts on cutting-edge research and innovation projects. African organisations interested in participating in Horizon Europe projects should keep a close eye on the application and funding opportunities that will become available as a result of this inclusive policy change, currently run under the “Africa Initiative II”. This means that under the Horizon Europe 2023-2024 Work Programme a series of calls for proposals will be published which are open to/requiring the participation of African scientists.

 

*For details, check the list of the eligible countries in the General Annexes to the Horizon Europe Work Programme 2023-2024 (pages 8-10)
