The ACP S&T Programme is another EU-funded programme implemented by the ACP secretariat, aimed at facilitating the creation and/or strengthening frameworks for regional and sub-regional co-operation and of inter-institutional co-operation in the African, Caribbean and Pacific region in the field of science and technology.
The programme is focused on the quality of health care systems, environment research activities, renewable energy, transport, agriculture and agro industry and sustainable trade.
The Department of Science and Technology has established a funding instrument to assist SA researchers participating in the programme with the shortfall that they may incur in their projects.
Kindly note, DST will now need to enter into contracts with the applicant’s institution for all our funding instruments established to support SA’s participation in the European Union funded programmes. As a result, it may take up to a month to get a response and receive a contract from us. It is important for applicants to submit applications two months before the planned activity to have enough time to process and arrange payment.
