The British Council is delighted to launch the Innovation for African Universities (IAU) project.
The IAU is a learning and collaboration platform which brings together Universities in the UK and SSA to engage, interact and learn from one another with the aim of developing mutually beneficial partnerships that strengthen the capacity of Higher Education systems in both locations and increase their capability to participate and provide meaningful contributions as key players within the entrepreneurship ecosystem.
The project will be delivered by a centre of excellence – a partnership comprising 1 UK and 1 SSA University, that would be selected through a competitive process.
The centre of excellence partners must possess national, regional and international experience supporting entrepreneurship ecosystem strengthening and development as well as contextual knowledge regarding the challenges of higher education and business development in SSA.
