European Science and Research Commissioner in Cape Town for Global Earth Observation Summit

Abstract:
While in Cape Town, Commissioner Potocnik will celebrate 10 years of successful scientific co-operation between South Africa and the European Union. This co-operation is thriving, with South Africa one of the top international participants in the Research Framework Programme (FP6). South African researchers took part in 117 international research projects, ranking it fourth, behind the United States of America, The People's Republic of China and the Russian Federation, in terms of successful FP6 participation by non-EU countries. The main areas of co-operation were Biotechnology and Genomics for Health, Food Safety and Quality, Global Change and Ecosystems, as well as Nanotechnology, Materials and Production. Both sides are looking to build on this positive experience for the current Framework Programme (FP7). He will meet with South African industrialists to discuss the role of innovation in economic development and the efforts being made in South Africa and the EU in this direction.
