Excellence Lab: Horizon Europe funding opportunities and matchmaking for green research and innovation cooperation between Africa, Europe and Bavaria
International cooperation with the Global South, especially Africa, is an important part of Horizon Europe, the EU Framework Programme for Research and Innovation. The programme is embedded in the relevant policy framework and the current objectives of the European Commission, such as the AU-EU Innovation Agenda.
The event will be divided into two similar parts and will take place on two consecutive days so that the respective specific requirements of the two calls can be highlighted:
- EU-African Union cooperation on agroforestry management for climate change adaptation and mitigation
- EU-African Union – towards climate-neutral, social just fair trade food systems
Based on the respective call for proposals, the basic approach to such texts will be presented and details to be considered when applying will be highlighted. Participants are invited to briefly present their expertise and, if applicable, concrete project ideas that could be submitted to the respective Horizon Europe call topics mentioned above.
