Location / Venue: Cape Town, Park Inn Hotel
Country: South Africa

The event, which is being organised by CAAST-Net Plus partners, the Council on Health Research for Development, South Africa’s Department of Science and Technology, and the Spanish Foundation for International Cooperation Health and Social Affairs, is being arranged to coincide with the launch of the second phase of the European and Developing Countries Clinical Trials Partnership (EDCTP2) taking place from 1-3 December 2014. 

Background and Goals

The meeting will home in on the bi-regional health research cooperation impact analysis research that the CAAST-Net Plus project is currently developing (see CAAST-Net Plus Magazine - June 2014 issue for more info).

In particular, selected African and European collaborative health research project coordinators will have the opportunity to share learning and experiences with CAAST-Net Plus in order to strengthen the impact analysis.
 
Approaches to improving EU-Africa health research cooperation, and an assessment of the role of the private sector in health research cooperation will also form part of the workshop's discussion.

Important Event Update

The meeting will now take place on 3 December 2014, in Cape Town, South Africa, at the Park Inn Hotel, not on 1 December 2014 at the Vineyard Hotel as previously advertised.
