DIASPORA : COOPERATE WITH AFRICA WHEN YOU WORK IN EUROPE
Amphithéâtre F - 15.45 - 17.00
The number of researchers of African origin working in Europe has increased significantly over the last years. In this session, we address a core issue for these researchers, i.e., means of collaborating with the peers they "left back home".
The core of this session will be a series of short talks given by illustrious researchers of African origin who have managed the split between working in Europe and collaborating with organizations based on the African continent. This series of impulses will be followed by an open discussion and exchange within which the audience and the presenters will be given the opportunity to discuss approaches towards fruitful collaboration with organizations in Africa.
The session will be designed to be highly interactive: Attendees will be invited to ask questions at any time as well as provide their experiences on Europe-Africa collaboration.
