E-Kick-Off Event of African Centre for Career Enhancement & Skills Support (ACCESS)

ACCESS is a five-year project spearheaded by Leipzig University, jointly implemented by a consortium of six African universities in Benin, Ghana, Kenya, Nigeria, Rwanda and Tunisia. ACCESS seeks to address the paradox of improved formal education systems in Africa and rising unemployment rates among African university graduates.

Within the project framework, new interdisciplinary concepts will be developed and piloted to contribute to promoting the employability of students and graduates of African universities. With the benefit from existing collaborations between Leipzig University and its African partner universities, ACCESS seeks to create a practice-oriented interface for African Higher Educational Institutions (HEIs), development cooperation partners, business associations and agencies in the Global South.

The project will be based on four pillars: Capacity Building, University Business Linkages, Employability Research and African German Entrepreneurship Academy. For more information, please see www.access-centre.org. ACCESS is funded by the DAAD in the programme "University Excellence in Development Cooperation (exceed)"

Please confirm your participation* latest until 25th of June by email: event-access(at)uni-leipzig.de

More details will be sent to you after successful registration.
