Investing in European successProGReSS has been selected among the success stories of EU-Africa cooperation on science, technology and innovation in FP7 and is featured in the EC brochure edited by the DG Research and Innovation!

The article introduces the work done by ProGReSS, together with its partner SASI, highlighting how RRI creates opportunities to innovate “for and with the poor”. The interviewees Prof. Doris Schroeder, ProGReSS’ co-ordinator, and Roger Chennells, a lawyer working for the South African San Institute (SASI), explain how an EU-funded project is helping the San peoples to share their traditional medicinal knowledge and claim their rightful benefits.
