The FNSSA Stakeholder Engagement Week will take place virtually, from 31 May to 4 June 2021, it will have two larger plenaries and several thematic sessions. The plenary sessions will focus on the outcomes and achievements of the Partnership and the implementation of the EU-AU FNSSA Roadmap. The plenary sessions will take place on day 1 and 5 of the event.


The event is expected to attract, among others, representatives from EU and AU member states, from projects/programmes responding to the Roadmap, as well as other multilateral organisations in the field of FNSSA, such as the World Food Programme.


Our goal is to put together a week of joint reflection on the outcomes of cooperation in research and innovation and to discuss how to bring Europe and Africa closer together in the FNSSA.
