On the 16th and 17th of October of 2014 NABC organizes the second edition of the Africa Works! conference, together with the African Studies Centre. Be one of 500+ participants: registration will open soon!

The objective of Africa Works! 2014 is to explore the challenges en opportunities Africa poses to companies, government bodies, NGO’s  and knowledge centers through informing, inspiring, and expanding professional networks.

During Africa Works! 2014 we focus on knowledge and practical knowledge questions about the current situation and realities in African countries and what this implies for business, diplomacy, and partnerships when it comes to opportunities and constraints.

Africa Works! serves as a platform for new partnerships, while ensuring interaction between the above mentioned parties. A combination of scientific seminars and practical workshops will highlight those themes that are relevant to Africa today.

We highly recommend to set the agenda and fill one of the workshops with interesting partners from knowledge institutes, government bodies, companies and/or NGO’s. Please find the call for proposals under programme.

You can find more information about the conference on the Africa Works! website.

Do not hesitate to contact us on and ask about possible partner options.
