Sigma Orionis has the privilege to be part of two new projects that will focus on strengthening EU-Africa ICT research links. Both projects are funded by the Horizon 2020 R&D funding programme of the European Commission and address the topic of e-Infrastructure policy development and international cooperation:
Both projects will run for two years and bring together highly experienced teams of experts that have already worked on advancing African e-Infrastructures. Moreover, the two projects build on successes made in the framework of previous EU-funded initiatives targeting Africa, mainly eI4Africa coordinated by Sigma Orionis and aiming at boosting the Research, Technological Development and Innovation potential of African e-Infrastructures and to support policy dialogues and Euro-African cooperation in the framework of the joint Africa-EU Strategic Partnership.
Sigma Orionis is very proud to be involved in these new projects that reinforce the portfolio of coordination and support actions addressing Africa that the company has been successfully developing for more than 15 years. Sigma Orionis looks forward to bringing its expertise in strengthening and supporting EU-Africa research cooperation and policy dialogues.
