Announcement: UK to Host HLPD Working Group Meeting on Food and Nutrition Security
The meeting, organised with the support of CAAST-Net Plus, will be held back-to-back with the EU-Africa HLPD Bureau meeting.
Members of the HLPD Bureau, the HLPD Expert Working Group (EWG), potential funding parties and partners from FP7-funded projects, CAAST-Net Plus and the Research and Innovation Network for Europe and Africa (RINEA), are expected to discuss a way forward on the food and nutrition security road-map.
On the agenda will be the HLPD EWG's input to the roadmap on food and nutrition and sustainable agriculture, as well as prospects for a second joint call for research proposals.
The roadmap is based on the outcomes of the 2013 HLPD meeting, where an agreement was reached to develop a long-term co-managed and co-funded EU-Africa Research and Innovation Partnership focusing initially on food and nutrition security.
The roadmap is expected to be completed by June 2015.
CAAST-Net Plus and RINEA will present their complementary supporting roles in the cooperation process, which will lead to greater synergies in EU-Africa science, technology and innovation cooperation.
