Completed activities, deliverables and mapping (June'11)

ERAfrica's website has been online for a few months now and the content is growing as deliverables are being completed continuously. Also about to be completed are efforts intended to support the process of ultimately designing joint activities by mapping both national research programmes and initiatives between Europe and Africa and regional programmes, initiatives and strategies that are relevant to ERAfrica during the definition of the joint activities.

Completed activities
A number of tasks have already been completed. Important examples include a communication strategy and a consortium agreement which have recently been agreed upon. Both tasks have been completed under the leadership of IRD. Another notable landmark was when the website erafrica.eu went online thanks to the work of PT-DLR.

Completed deliverables:
• Communications strategy for ERAfrica (IRD)
• ERAfrica website www.erafrica.eu (PT-DLR)
• ERAfrica News Bulletin (KEF-OeAD)
• News monitoring activity (KEF-OeAD)
• Terms of Reference for Scientific Advisory Council (SNSF)
• Election of Scientific Advisory Board members (SNSF)
• Contact list of programmes and parties for distribution of ERAfrica introductory information (MOST-KE)
• Organization of Briefing Session in Mombasa, Kenya (MOST-KE)
• Minutes of kick-off meeting (IRD)
• Consortium agreement (IRD)

Mapping
Also about to be completed are efforts intended to support the process of ultimately designing joint activities by mapping both national research programmes and initiatives between Europe and Africa and regional programmes, initiatives and strategies that are relevant to ERAfrica during the definition of the joint activities. The report resulting from the strategic analysis carried out in these mapping activities will form the basis for other activities.
