We are very proud of the participation of EURAXESS Africa in the AU-EU Innovation Agenda Stakeholder Event which was held in Nairobi, 23 - 24 November 2022.

The AU-EU Joint Innovation Agenda is an unprecedented initiative to accelerate the translation of research and innovation into tangible positive impact on the ground, to generate products, services, businesses and jobs in Africa and Europe. It proposes four objectives, articulated in short-, medium- and long-term actions, for each of the four priority areas of AU-EU cooperation in science, technology and innovation (i.e. (i) public health, (ii) green transition, (iii) scientific capacity, and (iv) innovation and technology), as well as for (v) cross-cutting issues
