Our “sister project”: FOCUS-Africa

CONFER has two “Sister projects”: DOWN2EARTH and FOCUS-Africa. All three are funded under the same sub-topic of the Horizon 2020 programme, and we want to explore our “sister projects” a bit further. Today we introduce our sister project FOCUS-Africa, led by Roberta Boscolo at WMO. We have asked her for some insight into what the project does, its connection to CONFER, and how the two projects work together.

Our “sister project”: DOWN2EARTH

CONFER has two “Sister projects”: DOWN2EARTH and FOCUS-Africa. All three are funded under the same sub-topic of the Horizon 2020 programme, and we want to explore our “sister projects” a bit further. First up is DOWN2EARTH, led by Dr Michael Singer at the University of Cardiff. We have asked him for some insight into what the project does, its connection to CONFER, and how the two projects work together.
