PAUWES Research-2-Practice Forum 2018

29 Mar

This spring, PAUWES is scheduled to host the PAUWES Research-2-Practice Forum 2018 from 16th to 18th April in Tlemcen, Algeria.

This international conference will bring together over 150 participants from over 40 countries with the aim to promote and support applied and practice-oriented research and strategic partnerships on renewable energy, water and climate security in Africa.

 

In keeping with the African Union Agenda 2063,  the African Union Science, Technology and Innovation Strategy for Africa 2024 (STISA-2024) and  the Africa Water Vision 2025, a key role of PAUWES is seen in providing scientific and technological solutions to support a sustainable socio-economic development in the continent, science-based advice to policy makers on a local, national, regional and Pan-African level.

In this light, the forum will bring together and provide a platform for experts, scientists, education leaders, decision makers, entrepreneurs, private and public sector, policy makers, civil society actors and institutions interested or active in applied and practice-oriented research for development to discuss state of the art, challenges and innovative solutions in the areas of renewable energy, water and climate security and build strategic partnerships in Africa.

 

Furthermore this is an opportunity for the PAUWES academic fraternity to showcase its various projects while growing its network.  

 

With support from the German Government and in cooperation with a consortium of German universities (UNU-EHS, ZEF and ITT) led by UNU-EHS and the University Abou Bekr Belkaid in Tlemcen, we look forward to a productive event.
