Recommendations: Workshop on Lessons Learned from Specific Bilateral and Multilateral S&T Activities between Europe and Africa

Representatives from Africa and Europe with extensive experience in bilateral and multilateral cooperation projects shared their experience and knowledge to identify best practices and recommendations promoting effective cooperation within a project between the EU and Africa. The objective of the workshop was to analyse the existing practises within EU-African S&T cooperation projects and to capitalise on the experience of the actors involved in such projects for future S&T cooperation initiatives within the FP7 and beyond.

The workshop, which took place in France, addressed a number of issues which are considered crucial for ensuring a successful S&T cooperation, and most particularly between Europe and Africa.

These issues cover important dimensions of S&T cooperation during the different phases of a project (from the preparation to the implementation and the sustainability of the action), including:

  • The ethics dimension;
  • The construction, organisation and deontology of the consortium;
  • The joint ownership and the dissemination of the project results;
  • The impact of capacity building in S&T cooperation projects; and,
  • The sustainability of the results and the partnerships.
