Webinar series on the H2020 Green Deal Africa Call
Following the launching of the H2020 Africa Green Deal call by the European Commission, the AEIP organised a series of webinars to enlighten innovation actors from Africa and Europe on the benefits of participating in a H2020 call as well as on the specifics of the Green Deal Africa Call.
The first webinar took place on 1st December 2020. It was attended by over 40 organisations, mostly from Africa. The webinar informed participants about the application procedure for the H2020 calls, advised on how to build a consortia and provided insights into specifics of the H2020 calls. The presentation of the Green Deal Africa call was given by two Senior Officials of the European commission: Dr. Piero Venturi, Science Counsellor to the African Union, Delegation of the European Union to the African Union; and Philippe Schild, European Commission, DG RTD.

The second webinar took place on Wednesday 2nd December, and was the first of its kind where the AEIP organised an online match-making event. Over 23 European organisations and 13 African organisations were interested in fostering their networks with peers of the other continent for development of partnerships within the framework of the Green Deal African Call. Given that one of the objectives of the AEIP is to facilitate networking and collaborations between African and European innovation stakeholders, the organisations were happy to meet like-minded potential partners with whom they can build projects.
