This annual Forum for Rectors, Deans and senior management of agricultural and life science universities aims to provide these university decision makers from ICA’s member universities with the opportunity to meet, to discuss current issues in the agricultural and life sciences and to exchange views on issues with relevant stakeholders in industry, government and NGOs. This Forum follows the successful Forums from 2011 to 2018.

The Forum will look ahead to 2030 exploring the opportunities and mutual benefits for collaboration between European and African agricultural and life science universities for addressing the challenges of developing a sustainable future.  We will review the current challenges facing our universities, and the success of the current engagements in supporting capacity development.  We will foresee the enhanced contribution to our sustainable future by agricultural and life science universities by 2030 through striving towards the achievement of the UN Sustainable Development Goals Agenda.  In doing so we will examine the potential for African and European agricultural and life science universities to strengthen their collaboration for their mutual gain.
