Detailed description of project Back

The ACP Science and Technology Programme (ACP S&T) originates from the need of a joint and systematic ACP-EU (African Caribbean and Pacific – European Union) approach in the field of research and innovations and responds to the conclusions of the 2002 Cape Town ACP Ministerial Forum on Research and the Johannesburg World Summit on Sustainable Development (WSSD).

The overall objective of the ACP Science and Technology Programme is to support ACP countries in formulating and implementing science and technology policies that can lead to sustainable development and to poverty reduction through economic growth and progressive integration in the world economy.

The purpose of the Programme is to strengthen the internal science and technology capacity of ACP countries at three levels:

  • Institutional, administrative and policy making levels;
  • Academic research and technology;
  • Business and civil society.

The objective of this mission is to undertake the mid-term evaluation of the programme.
