Leap-Re Stakeholders Forum

The LEAP-RE Stakeholder Forum is an event organised to enrich the LEAP-RE Community. It aims to create and expand an international multi-stakeholder community dealing with renewable energy, science-based policymaking, funding and research, innovation, monitoring, evaluation and learning, in Africa and Europe. Its objectives are to identify, design, and implement the services and functions of LEAP-RE and to foster collaboration with similar initiatives.

This second edition aims to build and animate the LEAP-RE community and stakeholders by offering an opportunity for knowledge sharing and a space for networking, meetings and exchanges. It will serve as a means for supporting the scientific, innovation, and capacity building activities of the LEAP-RE programme and the 31 projects in the LEAP-RE Portfolio.

The Forum will provide a platform for the participants to:

    • Join a high-level meeting on renewable energy and participate in a Policy Workshop on Climate Change and Sustainable Energy (CCSE), as well as on the AU-EU Innovation Agenda
    • Participate in the Kick-off event of the 10 new projects joining the LEAP-RE Portfolio
    • Discover the results from the 21 ongoing projects in LEAP-RE, in topic as varied as stand-alone solar, geothermal energy, solar cooking, renewable energy for agriculture, recycling of renewable energy sources components, and more!
    • Co-develop the services of the long-term platform for multilateral AU-EU cooperation through workshops and other activities
