The Africa Europe Innovation Partnership (AEIP) supported by the European Commission would like to extend to you an invitation to join the on-line capacity building workshop “Empowering Technology Transfer Organisations as key agents of innovation” (see flyer attached for further details). This training session is being organised in the framework of the fourth AEIP event focusing on Technology Transfer, on the basis of the research and networking activities carried out by the AEIP in recent months. 

The training session will be delivered in collaboration with the Southern African Research and Innovation Management Association (SARIMA). SARIMA is an organisation that brings together Research and Innovation Management practitioners, to strengthen these disciplines and institutional capabilities across the SADC region. It will take place over the course of four online sessions between the month of June and July 2020. Each session will focus on a different aspect of Technology Transfer and the building and development of Technology Transfer Organisations. 

Joining the workshop will also provide you with access to the high level event organised by the AEIP on June 23rd, which will bring together European and African authorities and Technology Transfer Community of Practice members to discuss the sate of the art of collaboration between both continents in this field. For more information on the event and trainers please find flyer attached below. 

If you would like to join, we ask that you fill out the Expression of Interest (EoI) which is found here:  by June 11th at the latest. The results of the EoI screening will be announced during the second week of June at the latest.
