AFRICA BUILD

is a Coordination Action aiming to support and develop advanced Centres of Excellence in health care, education and research in the African countries, through Information Technologies.



The

vision aims to address fundamental problems in health research and education in a low income geographical area like Africa, providing innovative solutions by optimizing and sharing resources through the use of novel technologies.
From a conceptual perspective
AFRICA BUILD
will provide the scientific, technological and financial support for developing centres of excellence in health education and research in Africa.


This project is supported by the EU's Seventh Framework Programme (FP7-ICT).

AFRICA BUILD
started 1st August 2011 and will run for a period of 36 months.
These activities will foster the capacities and scientific excellence in the African centres and will be the starting point for future collaborative developments that will ensure sustainability once the CA ends.


Experiences of the consortium in previous successful projects and initiatives will be used for the exchanges and initiatives proposed in this Coordination Action.
Consortium
1. To analyze the state of the art in health research and
education in Africa. A Roadmap for future European
