Extract from the Joint Africa-EU Strategy Action Plan 2011-2012:
Partnership 8: Science, Info Society and Space
" (27) Actions under this partnership, including capacity building, will leverage faster inclusive economic growth and social development in Africa. The resulting knowledge-generating/knowledge based economy will help address more efficiently the major common problems and global challenges, and will be able to compete more effectively in rapidly evolving world markets. The Summit therefore welcomed progress thus far and encouraged all stakeholders to contribute to the timely implementation of the Second Action Plan for Science, Information Society and Space.
(28) The Summit agreed to launch a high-level Science and Technology policy dialogue at Senior Officials- and at Ministerial level to strengthen the Science and Technology cooperation framework and to ensure the necessary guidance in the pursuit of agreed objectives."
