EU-Africa PerMed consortium finally meets in Nairobi (Kenya)
12th July 2022
The EU-Africa PerMed consortium had its first onsite consortium meeting in Nairobi (Kenya), hosted by NACOSTI, the Kenya National Commission for Science, Technology and Innovation on the 12th of July 2022. After 18 months since the project started, the members of the consortium had the opportunity to finally discuss face to face about the evolution of the project, review the different work packages and exchange views with the members of the Advisory Board that also attended the meeting.
During the meeting, the consortium worked on the final preparation of the 1st regional stakeholder workshop, planned for the following two days. This workshop is an important milestone for the project, as it provided a first opportunity to discuss with African stakeholders from East Africa countries, about Personalised Medicine, the main challenges in the region and the opportunities for collaboration with Europe.
