Webinar: Boosting rural job creation and economic growth
Tapping the full potential of the Africa-EU Research and Innovation Partnership in Food and Nutrition and Sustainable Agriculture
Tuesday 13th of October 2020 at 10:00 am CET
On the occasion of the EU’s recent Communication ‘Towards a Comprehensive Strategy with Africa’ and the upcoming AU-EU Summit in 2021, the LEAP4FNSSA project invites you to a webinar on how science and innovation partnerships in Food and Nutrition Security and Sustainable Agriculture (FNSSA) 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.
We therefore want to discuss how cooperation between continents and actors can catalyse the effects on economic growth, agricultural markets, job creation and food businesses.
