Fostering innovations through sustainable and mutual partnerships
Finland-Africa Platform for Innovation (SDG 9) – FAPI is a network advancing multidisciplinary, innovative collaboration between higher education institutions and other actors in Finland and in Africa.
FAPI is one of the global networks supported by the Ministry for Education and Culture of Finland under its Internationalisation Programme 2021-2024.
Four of these networks are working with Africa to facilitate joint research, education and innovation collaboration between Finnish higher education institutions and African partners. Operating in close collaboration, they are contributing to the implementation of Finland’s Africa Strategy and advancing the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals. The networks are currently setting up and launching their activities.
