  • ACE II [2]
    The ACE II project was conceived in response to multiple and well-formulated project proposals from individual countries and universities for establishing regional education and research centers in specific topics. This larger systematic regional project is meant to strengthen longer-term African capacity to train at the highest level a new generation of Africans who can develop and apply science and technology to solve Africa’s most pressing challenges. Given the shared nature of these challenges such as energy shortage, high infant mortality, low agriculture productivity and high food imports, the challenge of adding value to primary commodities in Africa, for example, the investments and the capacity from this project should benefit the region and not be limited by national borders.
