The workshop aimed to explore potential academic-private sector collaboration, examine opportunities for strengthened cooperation in capacity-building in climate change, and investigate prospects for mounting new research funding schemes.

Around 25 European and sub-Saharan African participants from research, industry and civil society attended.

"While climate change is a cross-cutting concern, the discussion sought to explore how innovations might serve the needs of the health and food security sectors," said organiser Arne Tostensen speaking afterwards.
