Framework Conditions for Africa-­EU Research and Innovation Cooperation in the Field of Food and Nutrition Security: An Action Research Report

Africa-EU research and innovation (R&I) cooperation is particularly crucial in the effort to ensure food and nutrition security (FNS) in Africa. Many initiatives have been set up to build the landscape of Africa-EU cooperation. These initiatives provide a dynamic context for bi-regional R&I cooperation in FNS, but it is expected that more and better cooperation could exist if appropriate framework conditions were implemented. The objective of this report is to reflect on the framework conditions that could offer a better enabling environment to foster bi-regional cooperation. [Image credit: CAAST-Net Plus]

Policy Brief: Bringing Public and Private Sector Actors Closer Together in the Africa-EU Research and Innovation Partnership on Food and Nutrition Security

Expectations are high that the brand new research and innovation partnership between Africa and the EU in food and nutrition security and sustainable agriculture will make a tangible contribution to the human development priority area of the Joint Africa-EU Strategy. For this contribution to be realised in both regions and at scale, much stronger linkages need to be forged between publicly financed R&I actors, micro, small and medium-sized enterprises, and large-scale industrial players. How – and how soon – can this goal be achieved? This Policy Brief draws on results of original survey research undertaken by the Ministry of Higher Education and Research, Senegal, as part of its involvement in the CAAST-Net Plus project.
