Supporting Africa's digital transformation

The African Union – European Union (AU-EU) Digital for Development (D4D) Hub supports African institutions to lay grounds for an inclusive and sustainable digital transformation.

The project works with African governments and regional organisations to advance digital cooperation with European partners.


The AU-EU D4D Hub offers African institutions end-to-end support:

Technical assistance

Increasing the capability of regional and national institutions to develop and operationalise digital transformation plans.

Knowledge sharing

Facilitating exchanges of experiences, skills, and expertise between African and European stakeholders.

Multi-stakeholder dialogues

Organising dialogues between actors from the digital ecosystem to support participative policymaking and foster new partnerships.


Stronger partnerships for a prosperous digital future

In 2022, the AU-EU D4D Hub consolidated its role as an entry point to access technical expertise on human-centric digital transformation, becoming a dynamic facilitator of collaboration between Team Europe (including the European Union and its Member States) and African countries. Key milestones include the coordination of the Africa-Europe D4D Hub Multi-Stakeholder Forum, the launch of the D4D Access knowledge platform, and the rolling out of demand-driven technical assistance.


Discover our knowledge sharing platform

D4D Access is a new knowledge platform that centralises, promotes, and disseminates good practices and lessons on Digital for Development (D4D). Covercing a wide range of topics, from e-governance to digital entrepreneurship, D4D Access contains many useful resources to support digital stakeholders in Africa and Europe – including public institutions, donors, academia, companies, and civil society organisations – to advance an inclusive and sustainable digital transformation.


Request technical assistance

The AU-EU D4D Hub’s technical assistance is demand-driven, meaning that African institutions can request any of the services offered by the project according to their own priorities. The first step in the request process is to submit the following form to help us better understand your needs.
