The joint AU-EU Innovation Agenda is an unprecedented initiative aiming to accelerate the translation of Research and Innovation into tangible positive impact on the ground, so to generate products, services, businesses and jobs, in Africa and Europe. It proposes four objectives, articulated into short-term, medium-term and long-term actions, for each of the four priority areas of the AU-EU cooperation in Science, Technology and Innovation [namely (i) Public Health, (ii) Green Transition, (iii) Capacities for Science and (iv) Innovation and Technology], as well as for (v) Cross-cutting issues.

Objectives of the Event

This Stakeholder Event aims to provide a forum to:

  1. Present and discuss on the findings of the online public consultation on the AU-EU Innovation Agenda (which took place between February and June 2022);
  2. Discuss on specific stakeholder demands and ideas, and possible implementation routes for the Agenda, so to co-create its implementation plan;
  3. Showcase the AU and EU vibrant innovation ecosystems, in the form of a matchmaking session entitled “AU-EU Innovation Fair – meet the innovators”, to catalyse partnerships and foster collaborations and entrepreneurship;
  4. Provide strategic training and information sessions focused on topics of particular relevance to the implementation of the AU-EU Innovation Agenda.

Expected outcome

Feedback and input received during this Stakeholder Event will be taken into account in the preparation of the final version of the AU-EU Innovation Agenda, expected to be ready for the beginning of 2023, so to be presented for adoption during the AU-EU Ministerial Meeting on Science, Technology and Innovation, to take place later on in 2023.
