South Africa sets out FP7 ambitions
South Africa set out its ambitions for participation in the Seventh Framework Programme (FP7) at an event celebrating South African science and technology held in Brussels on 26 April.
However, during FP6, ESASTAP (European - South African Science and Technology Advancement Programme) was launched. Funded by the EU under FP6, and run by the South African Department of Science and Technology (DST), ESASTAP is a dedicated platform for the advancement of SA-EU partnerships.
Thanks to ESASTAP, South African participation in EU projects has risen sharply. Under FP6, well over 100 South African partners got involved in EU projects, including initiatives in information and communication technologies (ICT), nanotechnology, aerospace and the social sciences.
