Global university partnerships for addressing emerging development challenges | webinar

October 7, 2020 @ 3:00 pm - 5:30 pm

Global university partnerships for addressing emerging development challenges | survey

RUFORUM Webinar 13 is coming!

Universities worldwide are charged with training human resources who are the next generation of leaders and policy makers, researchers and innovations, and entrepreneurs. In other words, universities and other training institutions hold in their hands, the future of tomorrow’s world. In a short and medium term, universities conduct research, produce knowledge and innovate to solve societal challenges and provide policy guidance. While universities have continuously provided such support and national level, there is a recognition that alliances and partnerships are important in the higher education sector.

The world has become a global village, connected either physically by fast means of transportation or virtually through social media platforms, professional research network platforms, etc. Therefore, labour force, technologies and innovations easily find themselves across oceans and seas, which was not the case 30 to 50 years ago. The need for knowledge, technologies, labour force, infrastructure and other resources sharing became even more important in times of emergency such as the COVID-19 pandemic. Because of the functionality of networks and effective sharing of resources, countries have been able to mitigate the “would be worse” consequences of COVID-19.

This Webinar 13 is dedicated to exploring possible ways of operationalizing the adaptation of emerging best practices among continents. Specifically, the Webinar will discuss;

  • i) emerging higher agricultural education, research and innovation models;
  • ii) and present possible programmes between Africa and each of the continents represented, and
  • iii) avenues for financing such partnership programmes.
