European Research Council - ERC

The European Research Council (ERC) is a flagship component of Horizon Europe’s Excellent Science.

The European Research Council supports frontier research, cross-disciplinary proposals and pioneering ideas in new and emerging fields which introduce unconventional and innovative approaches.

The ERC's mission is to encourage the highest quality research in Europe through competitive funding and to support investigator-driven frontier research across all fields of research, on the basis of scientific excellence.

The ERC is providing funding for excellent researchers of any nationality, to carry out frontier research in Europe, via annual calls.

ERASMUS+

ERASMUS +

Erasmus+ is the EU Programme in the fields of education, training, youth and sport for the period 2021-2027. Education, training, youth and sport can make a major contribution to help tackle socio-economic changes, the key challenges that Europe will be facing until the end of the decade and to support the implementation of the European policy agenda for growth, jobs, equity and social inclusion.

Erasmus+ has opportunities for a wide range of organisations, including universities, education and training providers, think-tanks, research organisations, and private businesses.

Erasmus+ includes a strong international dimension (i.e. cooperation with Partner Countries) notably in the fields of higher education and youth. African institutions and individuals are eligible for participation promoting cooperation and mobility activities that have a positive impact on the qualitative development of youth work, youth policies and youth systems as well as on the recognition of non-formal education in Partner Countries, notably in African countries.

EUROPEAN UNION AND AFRICAN UNION COLLABORATION IN R&D

 

The AU-EU High Level Policy Dialogue (HLPD) on Science, Technology and Innovation was adopted at the 3rd AU-EU Summit in Tripoli in 2010 as an important element of the Joint Africa-EU Strategy (JAES). The dialogue serves as a platform for regular exchange on research and innovation policy and aims to formulate and implement long-term priorities to strengthen Africa-Europe cooperation in research and innovation. The AU-EU High-Level Policy Dialogue (HLPD) on Science, Technology and Innovation is co-chaired by the European Commission Directorate General for Research and Innovation (DG RTD) and by the African Union member state holding chair of the Specialised Technical Committee (STC) on Education, Science and Technology of the African Union.

In the context of the Joint EU-Africa Strategy (JAES) and the partnerships adopted at the AU-EU Summit in December 2007, the HLPD SOM plays a central role in formulating, reinforcing and evaluating the Africa-Europe cooperation in research and innovation (R&I).

The dialogue is co-chaired by the European Commission (DG RTD) and by the African Union (STC on Education, Science and Technology). During its biennial Senior Officials´ Meetings (SOMs), the HLPD brings together the R&I representatives from the 27 EU and the 55 AU member states. To engage the AU and EU economic regions in the policy dialogue, the regional economic communities, the New Partnership for Africa's Development (NEPAD) and other regional organisations are invited as observers to attend the SOM.

The HLPD SOM also acts as the forum which reports, supports and prepares the Ministerial Meetings on Research and Innovation. It further assists the follow-up the implementation of the Ministerial decisions. The first ever AU - EU R&I Ministers’ Meeting took place on 16 July 2020, under the framework of the AU-EU High-Level Policy Dialogue (HLPD) on Science, Technology and Innovation.

 

The HLPD SOM is supported by the HLPD Bureau, comprising of representatives from several AU and EU member states. From 2013 onwards, the HLPD bureau has met more than 50 times, mostly through video conference.

 

The Bureau provides logistic and technical support to the SOM and the chair, particularly in preparing input documents, following-up the implementation of SOM decisions and organising the SOM and Ministerial Meetings. The Bureau is chaired by the SOM chair. To this end, current members of the Bureau from the African side are: AUC – Department of Human Resources, Science and Technology, Uganda (AU co-chair), Central African Republic (1st Vice Chair), Namibia (2nd Vice Chair), Algeria, Egypt, Senegal, South Africa and Sudan. From the European side the following countries Croatia, France, Germany, Italy, Portugal and Spain are members of the Bureau.

The HLPD supports the implementation of the JAES by defining priority areas for research cooperation. So far, the HLPD focuses on the implementation of its four long-term, jointly funded R&I partnerships:

 

 

  • Food and Nutrition Security and Sustainable Agriculture (FNSSA),
  • Climate Change and Sustainable Energy (CCSE),
  • Innovation
  • Public Health represented by the European & Developing Countries Clinical Trials Partnership (EDCTP).

 

 

During the first Ministerial Meeting of the African Union and European Union R&I Ministers in July 2020, the EU Commissioner Mariya Gabriel announced the Partnerships of the HLPD as part of the four thematic priority groups between the two continents: Public Health, Green Transition; Innovation and Technology and Capacity for Science. In this sense, each pillar will touch upon existing instruments of the cooperation:

 

 

  • Priority group Public Health: the EDCTP for Health;
  • Priority group Green Transition: the two partnerships on Food and Nutrition Security and Sustainable Agriculture (FNSSA), as well as Climate Change and Sustainable Energy (CCSE),
  • Priority group Innovation and Technology: the working group on Innovation under the HLPD.

At the request of the AU-EU Summit 2014, an African-European expert group was tasked, under the guidance of the HLPD, to draft a roadmap towards an AU-EU R&I Partnership on Food and Nutrition Security and Sustainable Agriculture (FNSSA).
