Bridging knowledge exchange between Africa and Europe

 

We strengthen academic institutions and research on the African continent.

 

We work with

  • African scientists and research institutions to enhance their positioning on the global research community
  • European and American scientists and institutions who wish to collaborate with Africa partners

 

Our goal is to identify synergies between African and European research institutions for fruitful collaboration projects.

 

Highlighting African scientists’ profiles and achievements
We encourage and advise African scientists to build an online presence for their academic achievements.

Supporting global scientific networking
We assist African and European scientists in finding collaboration partners.

Collaboration with likeminded organisations
With our partners we offer support and consultation on various aspects such as institutional optimisation, career building, equipment donations and global exchange of knowledge and resources.
