Africa’s role is central in global policies and will become increasingly strategic along the strengthening of national economies and the population growth. Global challenges have proven to be complex and multidisciplinary, sometimes unpredictable as experienced in 2020. In this context, academic training and scientific research play a primary role as they can enhance change via innovation and knowledge.
The mission of this Specializing Master course is to support African Universities by contributing to upgrading their staff and nurturing a qualified generation of skilled young researchers and lecturers.
The Specializing Master aims to strengthen transversal knowledge on issues in line with the Agenda 2030 and the Agenda 2063.
It is designed around 6 didactic modules (1 intro module, 2 transversal modules, 3 technical modules).
The overall objective is to nurture a qualified generation of skilled young researchers and lecturers on two main issues:
teaching innovation projects and sustainability.
The course includes the assignment of a project work to be carried out in groups. This will allow the attendants to apply the knowledge acquired within the modules by writing a research proposal on a topic of interest for their home University or by designing the programme and the syllabus for a new teaching course aligned with the Specializing Master topics.
