Strengthening the African knowledge society: towards more sustainable African-European university partnerships
22 November 2021 – virtual conference
The African Union’s Agenda 2063 and the EU’s vision for Global Gateways prioritising an AU-EU strategic partnership have both set ambitions to develop an African knowledge society through research and innovation. This is crucial to strengthen a prosperous Africa based on inclusive growth and sustainable development. We need a new approach to tackle the AU’s and EU’s common challenges, from climate change to health to digitalisation.
We may live in a digital world, but geography still matters.
