Research Collaboration between Mzumbe University and the University of Agder
Project TAN 58 (1988 - )
In the first years of the Mzumbe Universy/University of Agder - partnership (1988-1997), the collaboration was organised in a number of separate projects linking faculties of the two institutions with similar research interests. Since 1997 the collaboration has been organised in four research clusters:
- Entrepreneurship and Small Business Development
- Local Government
- ICT (established in 2000)
The two universities are currently in a process aiming at prolonging the partnership till 2011 under a new model of cooperation between Tanzanian public universities and the Royal Norwegian Embassy in Dar es Salaam.
