Cooperation is key:from development to research
On 24 October, United Nations Day coincides with World Development Inormation Day,established in 1972 to draw the world’s attention to the problems o global development and theinternational cooperation eorts to solve them. Research is just one o the orms o internationalcooperation that can improve the lives o people with poor access to land, water and resources, butit is an important one. Arican science is also moving rom strength to strength, with many researchorganisations interested in collaboration with European ones.So cooperation with countries outside the EU has always been an important part o the EU’sresearch Framework Programmes (FPs). FP7 includes a budget line on ‘International cooperation’ tosupport international science and technology policy dialogue and coordination, under the speciic programme ‘Capacities’. Researchers and organisations rom outside the EU can also participate in projects unded under the speciic programme ‘Cooperation’, and receive unding i they are romrecognised ‘International cooperation partner countries’ (ICPCs) — as most Arican countries are.In 2009, a EUR 63-million FP7 call was dedicated wholly to research with Arica, addressing some o the science and technology objectives included in the ‘EU-Arica Strategic Partnership’. he unded projects aimed to strengthen Arica’s research base, as well as improve health conditions and water and ood security.And previously, under FP6, many European research projects worked ruitully in Arica and with Arican organisations. With this in mind,the special eature in this issue o 
research*eu results magazine
ocuses on ‘Arica: international cooperation, research or development and thedigital divide’.he ‘environment and society’ section eatures many examples o research or development and research in Arica, starting on page 22 with‘How trees can help poor armers’. his is an interview with Graciela M. Rusch, Senior Research Scientist at the Norwegian Institute orNature Research (NINA) and coordinator o the Funcitree project, which is studying ‘Agro-orestry systems’ and the actors aecting or preventing their adoption in two sub-Saharan sites, in Mali and Senegal.he ‘biology and medicine’ section also starts with an article on research relevant to development in Arica. ‘New nomenclature or
 Biomphalaria
species in Lake Victoria?’, on page 6, reports on a project that investigated the water snails in Arica’s Lake Victoria that act as anintermediate host or the human parasite responsible or
 schistosomiasis
. Understanding the types o snail species present in the lake may help prevent the spread o this disease.he ‘energy and transport’ section starts with the article ‘Sounding out bubbles in pipes’ on page 13. he story ocuses on how Europeanresearchers helped ind a new method o measuring gas bubbles in pipelines, enabling workers to avoid bubble ‘blow-outs’ like the one thattook place in the Gul o Mexico in 2010.he eature article o the ‘I and telecommunications’ section is ‘Inspired by challenge — our robotic uture’ on page 31, which looks at how European scientists are developing robots by looking at the problems we ace today and the challenges o the uture, then trying to build smartand intelligent technologies to combat these diiculties.he ‘industrial technologies’ section opens with ‘Europeans push the bio-nano-technology envelope’, on page 39, which shines the spotlighton a project using so-called ‘DNA origami’ to build nanopore biotechnology — one o the most promising approaches to single moleculedetection and analysis.he issue ends, as usual, with a list o events and upcoming conerences. We look orward to receiving your eedback on this issue and on the
