Brussels 22nd June 2016
The ProIntensAfrica steering committee met in Brussels to prepare the Mid-term Review Meeting with the European Commission.
We went through the 7 work packages outputs in the 1st year of the project, and also shared present challenges, since the former meeting in Wageningen. WP 2 , the scientific agenda is very active at the moment, particularly with regard to to the in depth and light case studies under progress, whose results will contribute to shape the new scientific agenda. Another work package facing a great challenge is WP5, the governance of the partnership, that is organising a workshop in Pretoria in 20-21st of July, to discuss and develop governance mechanisms for long-term bi-continental partnerships.
Taking advantage of this meeting, WP6 dealing with the communication use the opportunity to assemble and discuss the near future of its activities.
