WUN Strategic Research Workshop

1 August 2017

The World Universities Network Global Africa Group launched its inaugural Strategic Research Workshop, hosted by the University of Ghana in a two-day event that brought together over sixty researchers from twelve WUN partner universities and ten other universities from four continents.

The workshop brought together faculty, researchers and postgraduate students from a multitude of countries in an effort to facilitate and promote research collaboration on five priority themes the Group felt were particularly pertinent to human development in the 21st century in Africa: Environmental change and food security; Public health; Governance, inequality and social inclusion; Higher education and research capacity; and Natural resources for inclusive growth and sustainable development.

Prof Rachael Gooberman-Hill, Director of the Elizabeth Blackwell Institute for Health Research, is Bristol's new Representative on the Global Africa Group Steering Group (taking over from Leon Tikly) with Celia Gregson.
