Joint Africa-EU Call on Food and Nutrition Security and Sustainable Agriculture and Aquaculture
LEAP-Agri is an African Union – European Union partnership between 30 partners aimed at research and innovation for food and nutrition security and sustainable agriculture. The partnership is an ERA-NET co-fund financed by institutes and ministries from these countries with additional finances from the European Commission in support of the EU-Africa High Level Policy Dialogue on science, technology and innovation and the implementation of the jointly funded EU-Africa Research and Innovation Partnership.
The proposals will invite consortia composed of at least four research organizations and/or private and public practitioners from the partner countries (two African and two European) to submit project proposals for research and innovation in the countries concerned and with an added value for the EU-AU partnership on food and nutrition security and sustainable agriculture. Requirements may differ between institutes/countries. The proposal development and execution should be driven by local demand and include an approach that contributes to enhancing impact.
Detailed information can be retrieved from the documents attached. All information related to the call will be published in January 2017 on the LEAP-Agri website: www.leap-agri.com
