This unique tool will contribute to create a more inclusive and effective R&I environment for sustainable development in African, Caribbean and Pacific (ACP) countries.
As a key component of the new OACPS Research and Innovation Programme, implemented by the Organisation of African, Caribbean and Pacific States (OACPS) and funded by the European Union, the Policy Support Facility aims to boost research and innovation (R&I) in ACP countries.
Policy and decision-makers from national and regional authorities in ACP countries (in charge of R&I and higher education) can benefit from this innovative mechanism to improve the quality and efficiency of their R&I system.
They can get high quality and tailored advice to:
– address specific R&I challenges;
– unlock the potential of R&I for systemic transformations to knowledge-led economies that will contribute to sustainable development and poverty reduction;
– foster regional collaboration in R&I.
High-level experts with hands-on knowledge in relevant R&I fields from ACP and EU countries will carry out a broad range of on-demand and tailor-made services.
If you want to submit a request, you will find all relevant information in the following documents:
