Investing in skills and the young generation is key for sustainable social and economic development. Africa and Europe have been working together to develop high quality and inclusive higher education systems, exchange experience in matching skills with the demands of the labour market and to support collaboration, mobility and exchange between students and scientists within and between the African continent and Europe.
Jointly organised by the European Commission, the African Union Commission and four higher education stakeholder organisations of EU member states - the German Academic Exchange Service, British Council, Campus France and Nuffic - this high-level conference will highlight the importance of collaboration in higher education between the two continents.
The conference takes place at the European Commission, Rue de la Loi 170 (Charlemagne Building), 1000 Brussels. It is addressed to higher education stakeholders, higher education institutions and policy actors from Europe and Africa. Participation is free of charge, but participants are required to pay their own travel and accommodation costs.
The registration deadline is 10 October.
The event aims to seek synergies between ongoing initiatives on European and African level. To this end, a poster session will be open for participation in the framework of the conference.
The deadline for proposals is 22 September.
Proposals need to be submitted via the registration form. We will contact all applicants shortly afterwards about the selection and further procedure.
