The Cambridge – Nigeria Outreach: Taking the right steps in research collaborations

Often times, research institutions and universities in Africa struggle to access research grants or even collaborate with leading research institutions abroad.

The Cambridge – Nigeria Outreach on partnership and collaborative research with the University of Cambridge

Leading economies of the world talk about helping Africa as a continent, sending aids and what have you, but Africa of Our Dream Initiative team believes that Africa doesn’t need aid, what Africa needs is the partnership at all fronts, not charities that do not allow the people to produce what they consume. It is not enough to identify problems, we need to profer solutions to those problems and build capacity from within to solve the problems in Africa. Africa is the future, Africa is the next hot spot, and unless this capacity is built, we run the risk of cursing entire generations to come.

It is on this note that the Founder of Africa of Our Dream Initiative David Chukwuma Izuogu on the platform of Africa of Our Dream Initiative and in partnership with the University of Cambridge (Cambridge – Africa Programme) organised a research collaboration seminar at the University of Nigeria, Nsukka with Prof. David Dunne, the Director of Cambridge-Africa programme at the University of Cambridge.
