Canadian, African universities form $2-million partnership

November 15, 2010

To coincide with African University Day last week, African and Canadian universities announced a new $2.2-million partnership, undertaken by the Association of African Universities and the Association of Universities and Colleges of Canada, to strengthen ties between African universities and local and regional industries to ensure the development of the skills and knowledge to meet the continent's current economic needs. As part of the partnership, individual African and Canadian institutions will team up to plan strategies for increased African university-industry linkages. For example, Ghana's University of Mines and Technology (UMaT) and Memorial University will work together to launch a co-operative education program at UMaT. AUCC News Release
