The ACP-EU Cooperation Programme in Science and Technology II – Call for Proposals launched
The ACP-EU Cooperation Programme in Science and Technology II (S&T II) Call for Proposals, was launched on 08/10/2012.
This second Call for Proposals under The ACP-EU Cooperation Programm in Science and Technology, builds upon the lessons learnt from the first Call for Proposals launched in 2008.
The global objectives of this Call for Proposals are:
to address the scientific and technological divide between ACP member states and the most industrialised countries;
to strengthen Science, Technology and Innovation (STI) in ACP countries to enable creation, update and use of scientific knowledge;
to enhance the use of STI as a key enabler for poverty reduction, growth and socio-economic development.
In line with the ACP Group of States' priorities and the EU Agenda for Change, the Programme prioritises Actions in the fields of Energy Access and Efficiency as well as Agriculture and Food Security. However, other sectors and/or interdisciplinary approaches are not excluded as long as the foreseen actions and activities are in line with the objectives of the Programme.
