Bridging the divide between developed and developing economies

As the European involvement in African science, and especially in current radio astronomy projects, seems to present a unique opportunity to bridge the traditional divide between developed and developing economies, MEPs call upon their colleagues to support scientific partnerships between Europe and Africa. This will also contribute to attaining the Millennium Development Goals.
Five members of the European Parliament, namely Miguel Angel Martínez Martínez (S&D), Filip Kaczmarek (EPP), Fiona Hall (ALDE), Judith Sargentini (GREENS) and Teresa Riera Madurell (S&D), have launched a Written Declaration on Science Capacity Building in Africa promoting European African radio astronomy partnerships. The European involvement in African radio astronomy is expected to be a possible driver of socioeconomic change that can create new market opportunities for both continents. The declaration is open for signatures until February 16 2012.
