The ICT4MRPQ Project Coordinator, Prof. Dr. David Katamba, along with project member Mr. Timothy Kimera, are currently in Abidjan, Ivory Coast, attending the 2024 Regional Erasmus+ Week for Sub-Saharan Africa. This three-day event, hosted by the European Commission’s DG Education, Youth, Sport, and Culture (EAC) and the European Education and Culture Executive Agency (EACEA), began on June 25th and concludes today, June 28th.

The event aims to gather Higher Education and Vocational Education and Training institutions from Sub-Saharan Africa and Europe who are active in the Erasmus+ programme or interested in developing cooperation under this scheme. Participants include stakeholders from both regions involved in the implementation and promotion of the Erasmus+ programme, such as the African Erasmus+ National Focal Points, Erasmus+ National Agencies, European Union Delegations in Africa, the European Commission, and the European Education and Culture Executive Agency.

The ICT4MRPQ Project is an implementing partner in Uganda, collaborating with partners in Europe, particularly in Portugal and the Netherlands.

During his presentation at the stakeholder engagement panel discussion, Prof. Dr. David Katamba emphasized the need for strong collaborations and the harmonization of key research and academic thematic areas.
