How to apply

The second Call for Proposals of the ACP-EU Cooperation Programme in Science and Technology II (S&T II) was launched on 08/10/2012 and closed on 07/02/2013. This Call builds upon the lessons learnt  from the first Call for Proposals launched in 2008.

The global objectives of this Call for Proposals are:

  • To address the scientific and technological divide between ACP member states and the most industrialised countries.
  • To strengthen Science, Technology and Innovation (STI) in ACP countries to enable creation, update and use of scientific knowledge.
  • To enhance the use of STI as a key enabler for poverty reduction, growth and socio-economic development.

In line with the ACP Group of States' priorities and the EU Agenda for Change, the Programme prioritises Actions in the fields of Energy Access and Efficiency as well as Agriculture and Food Security. However, other sectors and/or interdisciplinary approaches are not excluded as long as the foreseen actions and activities are in line with the objectives of the Programme.


The overall indicative amount made available under this Call for Proposals is EUR 20 800 000.

This call for proposals is divided into 2 Lots, one for each of the below-mentioned funding sources. Each lot has identical objectives, results and activities but different eligibility criteria towards participating countries.

LOT 1 – EDF – concerns the EUR 17 800 000 EDF contribution

LOT 2 – DCI – concerns the EUR 3 000 000 EU South Africa DCI contribution
