New OACPS Research and Innovation Programme website launched
Brussels, 25 February 2021/OACPS: The OACPS Research and Innovation (R&I) Programme now has a website to facilitate access to R&I information, knowledge and experience throughout the OACPS member countries. The website, available in French and English, features information on the Innovation Fund, Policy Support Facility, and shortly the R&I Exchange Platform — all of which will contribute to disseminating the knowledge and information produced by the Programme and by other important R&I initiatives. It will also engage key R&I actors in effective interactions to foster more conducive, inclusive and efficient R&I environments.
The R&I Exchange Platform, currently under construction, will enable the exchange of information, sharing of knowledge, experiences and best practices, as well as learning and collaboration with relevant colleagues and stakeholders to jointly address challenges and capture opportunities.
The OACPS R&I Programme is implemented by the Secretariat of the Organisation of African, Caribbean and Pacific States (OACPS) and funded by the European Union (EU) through the 11th European Development Fund (EDF).
