Within the framework of the European project ESECA, two exploratory missions were organized this summer by the partner clusters in three of the program target countries: Tanzania, Kenya, and Senegal. These missions aim at preparing future delegations of ESECA clusters and their SMEs in 2023.

The first mission took place at the end of June, and started in Nairobi. The ESECA project partners had 2 days dense with interesting meetings with 2 universities and research centers, 2 associations, and 1 accelerator. The ESECA consortium then moved to Dar Es Salaam, Tanzania, and participated in ARE Energy Acess Investment Forum 2022, an international trade fair that brought together key players in the energy and climate sector with the goal of increasing access to clean electricity globally.

These exploratory missions were organized with a view to identify key contacts in the local energy sector and initiate collaboration with these actors., in order to prepare the ground for future business missions in 2023 with European SMEs.

The next event under the ESECA project will be on September 15 and 16, 2022 in Lille, France, where the first networking workshop will be held.
