Making science work for development

EU-Africa High Level Policy Dialogue

The Bureau of the EU-Africa High Level Policy Dialogue (HLPD) on Science, Technology and Innovation is an initiative aimed at establishing long-term joint funding instruments and foster the research collaboration of EU and African scientists.

UKCDS represents the BIS International Knowledge and Innovation Unit on the Bureau, a panel of representatives from science or education ministries from 10 EU and African countries, co-chaired by the EU and African Union Commission representatives.

The Bureau of the EU-Africa HLPD has chosen to focus on food and nutrition security, and sustainable agriculture.
