CAAST-Net stakeholder conference on Africa-Europe S&T cooperation
In November 2011, CAAST-Net partners will convene the second Africa-Europe conference for stakeholders on science and technology cooperation. The event will take place in Dakar, Senegal under the auspices of the Ministry of Higher Education and Scientific Research. The conference will follow the model of the stakeholder conference of November 2009 in Mombasa hosted by the Kenyan Ministry of Higher Education, Science and Technology. That first CAAST-Net stakeholder conference focused on an examination of the nature and role of international S&T cooperation processes and was attended by approx. 150 participants from different stakeholder groups from both Europe and Africa.
