A high-level conference on ‘investing in people, by investing in higher education and skills in Africa’, takes place today in Brussels co-organised by the European Commission, the African Union Commission and four EU member state organisations; the German Academic Exchange Service (DAAD), the British Council, Campus France and Nuffic.

Fostering African-European cooperation in the field of higher education is the goal of the joint conference, which will highlight the role of education in responding to the demands of the younger generation. Strengthening collaboration, mobility and exchange between scientists and students of the two continents lies at the heart of the objectives of the Africa-Europe Alliance for Sustainable Investment and Jobs, which complements the long-standing political partnership between the two continents and aims to deepen economic and trade relations in an alliance of equals.
