AERAP is a stakeholder platform of industry, academia, the public sector and civil society established to define and implement radio astronomy cooperation initiatives between Africa and Europe. On the occasion of the 4th Africa-EU Summit and the 5th EU-Africa Business Forum, AERAP invites you to a roundtable seminar titled "AERAP’s contribution: Investing in People, Prosperity and Peace," which will take place on 2 April 2014 in Brussels.
The roundtable seminar will highlight the current and explore the future contributions of AERAP to the theme of Africa-EU cooperation set for the Summit, “Investing in People, Prosperity and Peace.”
“People” is at the heart of the AERAP agenda with concrete support for human capital development through the training of the next generation of African and European scientists and engineers. “Prosperity” is a key objective, as AERAP seeks to leverage the investment in radio astronomy related technology domains such as ICT, renewable energy or advanced manufacturing for economic growth and industrial competitiveness, for the mutual benefit of Africa and Europe. Above all, by promoting international scientific cooperation, AERAP supports “peace” by bringing people together, fostering international understanding, friendship and solidarity between Africa and Europe.
By exploring and reflecting on these themes during the roundtable seminar, AERAP aims to contribute to the broader discussion on the future of Africa-EU cooperation taking place at the Summit and associated events, bringing the role of international science and technology collaboration for mutual African-European social-economic benefit to the forefront.
