ACP Science and Technology Programme (ACP-EU)
The ACP (Africa, Caribbean, Pacific) Science and Technology Programme (ACP S&T) is an ACP-EU co-operation programme in the field of science and technology. It is funded by the European Union and implemented by the ACP Secretariat. The programme originates from the need for joint and systematic ACP-EU approaches in support of Science, Technology and Innovation (STI).
ACP S&T aims to target poverty eradication and focus on building and enhancing strong S&T capacities to support research, development and innovation in the ACP region, thereby enabling the identification and formulation of activities, processes and policies critical to sustainable development. In this perspective, appropriate technologies are made affordable, replicable and accessible technologies that can contribute to strengthen ACP countries' and communities' resilience towards internal and external shocks, such as the looming energy shortages, the effects of climate change and the rising food insecurity.

Phase II: Programme on Innovation, Higher Education and Research for Development – IHERD (2011-2013)
The IHERD Programme aimed to build on the UNESCO Forum by placing new emphasis on research and innovation, including the role of universities in this challenge.
Programme of Research, Higher Education, Development & Innovation – RHEDI
In order to build on results to date a new approach to the framework of the programme was adopted This structure will anchor the project and permit a hands-on approach. It will allow direct observation of research and innovation policy and management in various socio-economic contexts.
Partnership with University World News
The partnership with University World News brings the RHEDI community to a global audience. The aim is that the RHEDI community will provide opportunities for initiating collaborative research to ensure a new generation of researchers, policy-makers and practitioners can continue to develop this important work and bring it to a global audience.
