Domingos Barbosa was invited as a keynote speaker at the 76th United Nations General Assembly Science Summit (SSUNGA76), which was a great honor.
The theme of the presentation underlay the cooperation mechanisms AERAP (Afr-Eu Radio Platform), the SDGs (Societal Development Goals), and Africa. Barbosa's speech also focused on alignment with the NDICI, the cooperation mechanism with Africa that was launched by the EC. AERAP has always been strongly driven by South Africa in the US Parliament and has been instrumental in the success of the SKA.
The Science Summit at UNGA76 has a major contribution to advancing Science for the UN SDGs and in this year's edition had a particular focus on the Sustainable Development Goals and relations with Africa.
