LEAP4FNSSA organizes a webinar on October 13, 2020 on Boosting rural job creation and economic growth – Tapping the full potential of the Africa-EU research and innovation partnership in FNSSA.
On the occasion of the EU’s recent Communication ‘Towards a Comprehensive Strategy with Africa’ and the upcoming AU-EU Summit (24-26 October 2020), the LEAP4FNSSA project organizes this webinar on how science and innovation partnerships in FNSSA (Food and Nutrition Security and Sustainable Agriculture) can significantly contribute to the creation of rural jobs and sustainable economic growth.
Recent strategic policies from both Africa and Europe underline the important role of research, innovation and higher education for economic growth and job creation. R&I can be a motor for sustainable transformation. But the potential is often not fully realized, due to limited scope, fragmentation and working in silos.
Participants will therefore discuss how cooperation between continents and actors can catalyze the effects on economic growth, agricultural markets, job creation and food businesses.
