The AERAP Africa-Europe Science Collaboration Platform will organise a roundtable discussion on 8-9 December 2021 to consider the contribution of science to the priorities for the EU-Africa summit, currently scheduled for 17-18 February 2022 under the French Council Presidency of the European Union (1 January -30 June 2022). The purpose of the meeting will be to promote awareness of the contribution of collaborative research and development as a critical aspect of EU-Africa relations and collaborations while recognising the context of the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals, which provides a critical narrative.

The general topics that will inform the discussions include:
  1. The Neighbourhood, Development and International Cooperation Instrument, NDICI, also known as Global Europe, needs to reflect the enormous potential of collaborative and inclusive science to address the policy objectives addressed by the instrument, including digital transition and the Green deal; the Communication from the Commission on the Global Approach to Research and Innovation is a key paper: the Communication is intended to ....serve as a guide in implementing the international dimension of the new EU programme for civil research and innovation, Horizon Europe, and its synergies with other EU programmes, in particular the Neighbourhood, Development and International Cooperation Instrument - Global Europe.  For example, the Communication does not address the impact of the EU’s General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), which has extraterritorial application and its implications for research collaboration, particularly in medical science and health research.
  2. Accelerate an inclusive approach to collaborative research, recognising Africa leadership and the untapped potential of women and girls to contribute to science and innovation. This needs to start with a more cohesive approach to policymaking and regulation. 
  3. Consider how to leveraged synergies between funding mechanisms led by the EU and development finance provided by the African Development Bank, the European Investment Bank, the World Bank and others;
  4. Raise awareness of the unforeseen and unintended impact of EU regulations on potential research collaborations. These include data privacy, the General Data Protection Regulation, the In-vitro Diagnostics Regulation (IVDR), the Medical Devices Regulation (MDR) and the Clinical Trials Regulation. Good regulation cannot act as a barrier between you and African researchers. African nations need to build their enabling regulatory environment and pursue regulatory compliance with the EU. There is also an urgent need to create an enabling environment for trust relationships;
  5. Indigenous knowledge needs to be recognised as a force for good and part equation when promoting Africa-Europe science collaboration, including developing relevant information services and linking indigenous knowledge to data capacities; patent data and WTO TRIPS Art. 66.2 is key also;
  6. We will also consider the importance of the SDGs in this context, including enabling local and community (Local 2030) science and efficacy part of the global response.
Ministers of Foreign Affairs of the Member States of the African Union (AU) and the European Union (EU) met in Kigali, Rwanda, on 26 October 2021, took stock of progress regarding the priority areas adopted during the last AU – EU Summit held in 2017, in Abidjan. The Communique provides some guidance on priorities for the EU-AU Summit on 17-18 Feb 2022.

AERAP is a response to the European Parliament Written Declaration 45 on Science Capacity Building in Africa. This call was repeated by the Heads of State of the African Union through their Decision Assembly/AU/Dec.407 CXVIII. AERAP encourages policymakers to understand the need for an enabling policy and regulatory environment for science cooperation with Africa and championing leadership in Africa and Europe to demonstrate science’s contribution to society and address shared global challenges.

(REF DT08) How can Digital Transition for improved Health outcomes in Africa be rapidly advanced?
The broad adoption of Digital Health as a paradigm, platform and policy will be fundamentally important to the achievement of healthcare in Africa and ensure healthy lives and promote wellbeing for all at all ages.
Introduction – Why?

Around the world healthcare systems are facing increasing pressures and demands. Well developed countries are facing epidemics such as Diabetes or Obesity while developing countries struggle to leverage diagnostics and access to medicines.

All health systems have struggled to cope with the Covid 19 pandemic but there has been a benefit in that many health systems turned to digital solutions to cope. Despite the progress, many countries have runaway health budgets with rates of growth that are unsustainable.

Arguably Digital is the best medicine for our sick healthcare system. Leading physicians such as Erik Topol and Robert Wachter have written about the creative destruction of medicine and digital doctors respectively but how do we make the digital transition of healthcare as quickly and sustainably as possible. Michael Porter and Elizabeth Teisberg have long advocated for redefining healthcare using value-based competition. In this context a new paradigm is emerging, Open Innovation 2.0 which helps enable the structural transformation of an Industry through digital technologies and trust-based co-petition.

(REF GM09) Scientific Session: The plant-based platform as a part of Africa’s health revolution: challenges and opportunities”
Production of pharmaceutically relevant proteins is scarce in developing countries such as many in Africa, leading to most of them relying on importation at increased prices, as well as long lead times to receive these vital proteins (Tsekoa et al., 2020).

The recent pandemic highlighted the shocking disparity in access to diagnostics and vaccines for Africa and the fact that Africa requires its own manufacturing capabilities cannot be ignored any longer. The question then becomes, what platforms are suited to the unique environment of the African continent. The Plant-based system has been proposed as a boon for developing countries and has just reached maturity. It is affordable, quick and easy to set up and scalable. This session discusses the vision for Africa to become self-sufficient in terms of research and diagnostic reagents, as well as therapeutic proteins and vaccine manufacturing capacity. Health requirements specific to Africa and how the plant-based system is primed to respond to these will be highlighted. The challenges and opportunities, as well as the regulatory environment, will also be discussed.
South Africa and Argentina have historically been at the forefront of developments in molecular farming for developing countries. Both countries have a high level of expertise in the area, connections with local research and veterinary centres and focus on region-specific ailments (Rybicki et al., 2013).

Transgenic plants ultimately offer the most cost-effective strategy to address the issue of global access to healthcare. This is due to the economy of scale and low technical and scientific expertise required, the medicines could be homegrown by local farmers (Paul et al., 2013).

A ‘Boon’ is defined as ‘a timely benefit: blessing’ and this definitely applies to the fit between plant molecular pharming (PMP) and developing nations such as most African countries, India and Brazil. The timing aspect is ripe-PMP has finally reached maturity as a field and many patents have lapsed in both the technology and many protein products that could be produced. This technology is a blessing due to its ease of set up and running to produce various proteins that can improve human health and life, as well as the relatively low costs to do so that make it accessible to developing countries.

Key questions are the benefits of the Plant-based platform compared to other platforms, what are the top African specific health needs to focus on and what are the hurdles to overcome in terms of implementing in Africa.

(REF MP09) Policy Roundtable: "Women's Movements in African Science, Technology, and Innovation"
Considering the latest report of the UNESCO and UN-WOMEN, the number of female researchers in the world (both part- and full-time) is on average < 30% (UNESCO, 2019). For most countries, this number becomes even lower when STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics) fields are considered. Therefore, globally we are facing a significant gender gap in science. In Africa, most of the countries have a number of female scientists below 25%. Many factors may be responsible for the low number of female scientists (e.g., poverty and lack of access to education, social constraints, cultural biases and beliefs, lack of female mentors and role models, etc.), but the final result is that these difficulties mean we are losing huge potential that could benefit our society. We will never be able to reach the UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) without giving our best in empowering girls and women in all aspects of our society, including science. Over the past years, many societies of African women in science arose, trying to build stronger networks between women and to improve many of the challenges that women in science are facing. This session aims to give more visibility to different woman's movements in the fields of science, technology, and innovation, and to get their recommendations regarding the needed policy support instruments. In addition, these recommendations will be provided to policymakers through input for the EU-AU Summit on 17-18 February 2022. In particular, it will explore how synergies between Horizon Europe and the NDICI programme can be realised to support female researchers in Africa. It will also explore how a more inclusive approach is needed to decision-making, including more women in the decision-making process for science policies.
