NDICI is in the news with the announcement March 21, 2021 "This will be our most powerful tool to support a sustainable global recovery and promote comprehensive partnerships across the world that invest in democracy and human rights. With the instrument's financial arm- the EFSD+- we will have the means to increase the mobilisation of private investments towards the achievement of the Sustainable Development Goals."
The EU offers Innovation Planning grants to assist  the governments of African countries to tap this powerful tool offered by the EU of almost 80 Billion Euros. Join this workshop to learn how to apply for the grants given the new integration between Horizon Europe and NDICI. A special focus of this workshop will be "Digital Building Blocks". When a country tries to innovate on its own, its a very hard and lonely journey, prone to set backs, discouraging obstacles and failure. When an African country joins with its neighbours to do digital transformation of government tools and services, and uses common building blocks, its more affordable and each country can share successes, learn from failures, while all are no longer on a lonely trek, but a joyful journey with good companions with the same goal: A better future for future generations.
