The EU under its Intra-Africa Academic Mobility Scheme, has provided funding to support training of graduate students in African universities. In this mobility programme five African partner institutions and one EU Technical partner collaborate in the training of professionals to achieve sustainable fisheries management and aquaculture resources that shall lead to increased fish production and enhanced food and nutritional security, and hence, improved livelihood and household revenue.
The project is expected to contribute to
- Improved skills and competences of academic staff in research, training and supervision,
- Enhanced quality of graduate training that will lead to innovative and fit-for-purpose professionals in fisheries and aquaculture,
- Improved skills and competences of administrative staff in implementing international mobility. Subsequently, a procedure/platform to support the harmonisation and internationalisation of fisheries and aquaculture programmes among African Universities shall be achieved.
