A Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) on Academic and Research Collaboration has today been signed between the University of Ghana and the University of Cape Town by the Vice-Chancellor, Professor Ernest Aryeetey, and his counterpart, Dr. Max Price. |
The purpose of the MOU is to develop and carry out collaborative activities in furtherance of the common interest of the two institutions. The scope covers research and teaching collaboration in the areas of mutual interest and exchange of academic materials which are made available by both parties. It also includes the organisation of symposia, conferences, short courses and meetings on research issues of mutual interest, in addition to exchange of staff and senior students.
The two institutions both recognize that cultural and scientific interaction is indispensable to Universities in developing their educational and research activities and that Universities are enriched by collaboration with institutions of high learning in other countries.
The MOU is for a period of five years after which there will be the possibility of a review or amendment/renewal as agreed by both parties.
