LEAP-RE programme seeks to create a long-term partnership of African and European stakeholders in a quadruple helix approach: government (programme owners and funding agencies), research and academia, private sector, and civil society. 


The impact will be sought by creating a framework, methodology, and cooperation model. The aim is to reduce fragmentation by aligning existing bilateral and multilateral frameworks. LEAP-RE will establish and jointly implement research, innovation, and capacity-building activities in the renewable energy sector. 



  • Pillar 1: External Research Funding and Capacity Building Activities.
  • Pillar 2: 8 Key Projects – Internal Consortium Research and Innovation Projects and Capacity Building Activities. 
  • Pillar 3: Management, Coordination, Monitoring and Evaluation and Development of the Future Long-term Partnership.

New Knowledge: Contribute to the production of new knowledge, innovations, technology, products, and/or services in renewable energy topics of strategic relevance to AU-EU collaboration.
