Pan-African Support to Geological Sciences and Technology Africa-EU Partnership

“PanAfGeo-2” for “Pan-African Support to Geological Sciences and Technology” supports the training of geoscientific staff from African Geological Surveys through the development of an innovative training programme. This includes the acquisition and development of important professional skills that complement their technical qualifications. The training programme is carried out by geoscientists with international experience and coming from African and European Geological Surveys. PanAfGeo-2 (2021-2024) is a continuation of the well-recognised PanAfGeo (2016-2019), which has provided 42 training sessions for 1,068 geoscientists coming from 49 African countries, and generating notable impacts at the political, institutional, and technical capacity level in Africa.

African and European experts leading together a unique geoscientific training programme.

PanAfGeo-2 allows trainees to acquire a state-of-the-art tool, methods and/or experience the knowledge in 8 geoscientific skills:

  • WP-A: Geoscientific Mapping
  • WP-B: Mineral Resources Assessment
  • WP-C: Artisanal and Small-Scale Mining
  • WP-D: New Frontiers in Geosciences (Geoheritage and Geothermal energy)
  • WP-E: Geohazards & Environmental Management of Mines
  • WP-F: Georesources Governance & OAGS/GSOs Institutional Strengthening
  • WP-G: Geoscientific Information Management
  • WP-H: Communication, Dissemination and Dialogue
