Session 02.13

Institutional strategies for collaboration with Africa

Today, a mutual need for increased collaboration between European and African institutions is evident. But shall the development of collaboration be up to individual staff, students or perhaps even funding bodies, or can higher education institutions strategically support this development? This session will highlight different approaches from European higher education institutions to strategically support students and staff. Results from strategic efforts will be explored.
