The main activities of the project are:
- One-year joint training programme of Master 2 (DEA) in mathematics and computer sciences.
- University staff training.
- Establishment of a network of international groups of research.
One-year Joint Training Programme
This programme will be achieved through partnership cooperation between two Congolese universities and one European university. The University of Kinshasa (DRC) and the Marien Ngouabi University (Congo Brazzaville) will combine their experience and knowledge with the expertise of the University of Stockholm to achieve this training. To ensure effective partnership and sharing of best academic knowledge, these three universities will establish a network of international groups of research in mathematics and computer sciences. These groups will have a key role in managing and teaching in the joint training programme and similar training initiatives.
Developing Curricula and Training of Teachers
The second activity of the project will be the training of university staff in teaching and research before the implementation of the one-year joint programme for students. The university staff will have the opportunity to update their knowledge and techniques and be exposed to international academic best practice. Mid-career and senior teachers will refresh their specialist knowledge and receive training on latest developments on their fields of research and interest.
