RINEA mobility grants scheme: Networking opportunities for African stakeholders in brokerage events in Europe

The Research and Innovation Network for Europe and Africa (RINEA) is a project funded under Horizon 2020 with the aim to enhance STI cooperation between EU and African countries through the support to bi-regional policy dialogue and the strengthening of synergies between research and business communities from the two regions. For more information about the project please visit www.rinea.org

In the context of RINEA, we have recently launched a mobility grant scheme addressed to representatives from innovative SMEs, Universities, and other research organisations based in African countries and active in the field of FNSSA. The mobility grant scheme will financially support the participation of selected applicants in one of the following brokerage events:

Innovat&Match 2016, 9-10 June 2016, Bologna, Italy

IFAMA Matchmaking 2016, 21-22 June 2016, Aarhus, Denmark

Network and Consortium Building at CIGR-AgEng 2016, 28-29 June 2016, Aarhus, Denmark

The events are being organised in the framework of Enterprise Europe Network and they promote business, technological and research partnerships. Selected applicants will have the opportunity to explore possible synergies and build new partnerships with their European counterparts following a programme of pre-arranged meetings.

For more information about the aforementioned events, the grant scheme rules for participation, eligibility criteria, and the application procedure please visit http://www.rinea.org/en/937.php

The deadline for submission of applications is Friday, 29 April 2016.
