RUFORUM Projects

Projects

As a network, RUFORUM mobilises its members to develop projects and programmes that operationalise its strategic objectives. Depending on the strategic fit of the programme/project and the requirements of the funder, the projects are led by the RUFORUM Secretariat, by its member universities or by its non university research, private sector or government agencies within Africa. Some projects or programmes are led by non-African partners who are either universities, research institutions or private companies
