Ahead of the EU-African Union Summit and Business Forum to be hold from 15-18 February 2022, the EIF is hosting a debate on how to improve the partnership between these two regions when it comes to education, digital learning and skills.
The discussion will address questions of digital transformation, digital inclusion and best practices: How to bridge the digital divide, including in its gender component? How can we support youth employability? How can we support technological entrepreneurship? How to provide access to digital and entrepreneurial skills? The event will be an opportunity to present a few ongoing projects in this regard and discuss together concrete means to move the cooperation forward.
