2012 Africa-EU Cooperation Forum on ICT and Side Events, Lisbon, Portugal 26-30 November 2012

This year edition of the "Africa-EU Cooperation Forum on ICT" (an event designed to anyone with an interest in Euro-African collaborative project on ICT) will be held on November 28-29, 2012, at the Centro Cultural de Belém (CCB) in Lisbon, Portugal. The event is organised by the EuroAfrica-P8 Partnership in the framework of the EuroAfrica-ICT Initiative and with the support of the National Science Foundation (FCT) of Portugal.

This major event is the fifth of a series of very successful conferences organised by the EuroAfrica-ICT Initiative under the aegis of the European and the African Union Commissions (EC & AUC). These conferences have traditionally provided an indisputable focal point for all Euro-African stakeholders in the public and private sectors involved in collaborative ICT research and ICT for development with a specific emphasis on networking-opportunities, knowledge-sharing and consensus-building.

Organised in the framework of the Africa-EU Strategic Partnership (JAES) and hosted by the Government of Portugal through the Ministry of Education and Science (MEC), this 5th Forum edition will mainly aim at strengthening and supporting the development of cooperation on ICT research and ICT4D between Africa and Europe by: i). Allowing European and African stakeholders involved in the development of cooperation on ICT to get together; ii). Allowing participants to exchange views, share information, and identify synergies in order to increase the impact of their activities; iii). Further supporting policy dialogues, apprehending medium-to long term perspectives and agreeing on an overall and coherent vision; iv). Increasing the number of African organisations involved in EU/FP collaborative projects on ICT research thus enhancing the development of Euro-African collaborative projects in the field.

200-250 delegates are expected to attend the event: institutions, national and international companies, SMEs, academia, research institutes, etc. With a wide range of themes to be explored, including e-Learning, e-Health, e-Governance, e-Infrastructures, Living Labs, RECs, etc., a comprehensive programme will ensure all participants are able to develop international, cross-cutting contacts and enhance their knowledge and expertise.
