Conference on Research Excellence in Ethiopia through North-South Collaborations

On 27 January 2022, the virtual „Conference on Research Excellence in Ethiopia through North-South Collaborations” will be held to intensify the Ethiopian-European scientific cooperation. It is organized by members of Tshwane University of Technology, Wageningen University, Leiden University, the Africa-Europe Science and Innovation Platform (AERAP) and the Bavarian Research Alliance (BayFOR).

The main objectives of the conference are:

  • To enable universities, research institutions and funding organizations to share their experiences that are relevant for research excellence in Ethiopia;
