Expertise France is the public French agency for international technical assistance. Its goal is to contribute to sustainable development on the basis of solidarity and inclusion. The focus is on improving public policy in the partner countries. Expertise France designs and implements cooperation projects that promote knowledge transfer between specialists. The agency supports the sustainable development goals (SDGs) of the Agenda 2030 in line with the development policy of the European Union and the French policy of cooperation and development aid.
Expertise France is part of the Digital4Development(D4D) hub – the network of like-minded D4D EU member states and the European Commission. The hub is looking to support the European D4D agenda by promoting the #TeamEurope approach. Specifically, this means using the existing European D4D expertise and working closely together with European technology companies – for instance, as part of the D4D coalition. The hub is an open platform that integrates European, African and, in a second step, global partners for digital transformation.
