Strategic And Collaborative Capacity Development in Ethiopia and Africa (SACCADE)

SACCADE was established to build a strategic “map” for institutional capacity building and human resources for health development at College of Public Health & Medicine Science, Jimma University.

Training in research education for staff teaching in health and medical sciences is urgent to ensure development and quality of the research and research education. Capacity building in health sciences research education is necessary for improved quality of educational programs, retention of faculty and thus central to the SACCADE Project.

Exceeding Learning through Strategic Mobility and Academic Partnership (EXCEL SMART)

The overall aim of the EXCEL SMART JUiO NORPART Project is to enhance the quality of higher education in Ethiopia and expand and strengthen the academic cooperation between Jimma University (JU) and the University of Oslo (UiO). The project is based on a comprehensive Needs Assessment and current Norwegian Programme for Capacity Development in Higher Education and Research for Development (NORHED). Mobility is bidirectional and strategically driven by each institutions research and education development agenda.


The seminar is open to all, but please sign up.
