Kick-off meeting of the Euroafrica-P8 project

January 26, 2012January 27, 2012

Sigma Orionis organizes today and tomorrow in Nice, France, the kick-off meeting of the EuroAfrica-P8 FP7 project. Coordinated by Sigma Orionis, EuroAfrica-P8 aims at supporting policy dialogues and S&T cooperation between Europe and Africa in the ICT field in the framework of the ‘Africa-EU Strategic Partnership on Science, Space and the Information Society’ (the so-called ‘Partnership 8’ - P8). This new project will extend the significant momentum created by several EU-funded projects that Sigma Orionis has coordinated over the period 2006-2011 and aiming at strengthening cooperation links with Africa in ICT research and e-Infrastructures: START, EuroAfriCa-ICT, EuroAfrica-ICT.org and eI-Africa (see www.euroafrica-ict.org and www.ei-africa.eu). The EuroAfrica-P8 project - part of the International relations Unit’s portfolio of the European Commission’s DG INFSO - includes 11 organisations from Europe and Africa in its partnership and will run until the end of 2013.
