The vision

Strathmore and Bristol Data Science Week is the start of a commitment to develop a long term relationship between these two institutions and as part of this visit, a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) was signed. Going forward this collaboration will seek funding to support research visits across institutions, develop online training, and support early career researchers by providing further training opportunities and involvement in research.

Dr George Njenga, Dean of the Strathmore Business School and Professor Kate Robson Brown, Director of the Jean Golding Institute agreed that any collaborative work that the institutions embark on will need to bring impact to society, supporting advances in food security, education and the environment.
