Excellence Lab Bavaria – Togo / Ghana / Benin: Insight into the world of EU research funding / Financement européen de la recherche – un aperçu

On 6 April 2022, the University of Bayreuth and the Bavarian Research Alliance will host the workshop " Excellence Lab Bavaria – Togo / Ghana / Benin: Insight into the world of EU research funding / Financement européen de la recherche – un aperçu ". The event informs researchers and Students from the University of Bayreuth and from the African countries of Togo, Benin and Ghana learn about European funding opportunities for research and innovation and offer an ideal platform for prospective researchers to exchange information about current calls for proposals and concrete project ideas.

International cooperation with the Global South, especially Africa, is an important part of Horizon Europe, the EU's framework programme for research and innovation. The programme is embedded in the relevant policy framework of the European Commission, such as the joint Africa-EU strategy, with a focus on achieving the UN Sustainable Development Goals.

Our event is intended to be an introduction to available EU funding schemes (e.g. ERASMUS+). Additionally, participants from Togo, Benin and Ghana will present national funding instruments in the respective country and pitch project ideas. During the workshop, we will further highlight some contents of the joint Africa-EU strategy and give participants the opportunity to discuss current challenges in international scientific cooperation and their wishes for future cooperation.

Participants are invited to briefly present their project ideas and areas of research, as well as national funding instruments in Togo, Benin and Ghana.
