Smart Villages and the LCEDN are hosting a webinar on the 18th April, focusing on ‘PAUWES Research 2 Practice 2018 – African Ideas and Entrepreneurs’.

Linking research and development as a contribution to achieve the goals of the Agenda 2063 of the African Union is a priority for the Pan African University of the African Union. The Research-2-Practice Forum aims to provide a platform for experts/scientists, education leaders, decision makers, entrepreneurs, private and public sector, policy makers, civil society actors and institutions interested or active in applied and practice-oriented research for development to discuss state of the art, challenges and innovative solutions in the areas of renewable energy, water and climate security and build strategic partnerships.

For those not able to attend in person, Smart Villages and the UK LCEDN are arranging a live link-up with special session on Wednesday April 18th, from 13:00-14:30 (BST), where participants can hear more about PAUWES, the Research 2 Practice conference themes and discussions, hear from some of the pan-African organisations supporting the conference and hear some of the latest research ideas and entrepreneurial projects being presented.
