2. Bridging Africa, Latin America and Europe on Water and Renewable Energies Applications (BALEWARE)

Africa and Latin America have common issues related to water and renewable energy to be addressed by academia, industry, government and civil society organisations. This necessitates a platform of interactions of stakeholders from Africa, Europe and Latin America, that will be launched during the upcoming BALEWARE conference in December 2016. Initiated on the 29th of May 2015 at the Federal University of Parana, Curitiba, Brazil, by the coordinator of ANSOLE, BALEWARE is a follow up of the EU funded project NMP-DeLA on Deployment of Nanotechnology, Materials and Production Technologies for Health, Water and Energy in Latin America (nmp-dela.eu). As such, BALEWARE will promote joint initiatives and research proposals on Energy and Water for succeeding in the incoming public funding such as Horizon 2020 and any potential private funding. BALEWARE will in addition encourage south-south exchanges of students and researchers between Africa and Latin America. More details about the platform and the upcoming event will be published soon on baleware.org.
