GKI signs Memorandum of Understanding with Uganda National Council for Science & Technology

The Global Knowledge Initiative (GKI) is pleased to announce the formalization of a relationship we have long enjoyed with Uganda’s National Council for Science and Technology (UNCST).  On 6 November 2013, GKI Program Officer Andrew Gerard (on behalf of Chief Operating Officer Sara Farley) and UNCST Executive Secretary Dr. Peter Ndemere signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) officially connecting the two organizations and providing a framework for future activities. GKI and UNCST have collaborated with great success in the past.  In 2009, GKI helped UNCST develop mechanisms to put their newly developed National Science, Technology and Innovation policy into action.  GKI’s “From Policy to Action” policy dialogue connected policy makers and researchers to critical resources to facilitate the implementation of the national policy.  Given the success of our past collaborations, we are thrilled to inaugurate an even closer long-term partnership with UNCST.

Kenyatta University and GKI sign Memorandum of Understanding

At a ceremony held at Kenyatta University on January 10, 2013 GKI Chief Operating Officer Sara Farley and Kenyatta University Deputy Vice Rector Prof. John Okumu signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) linking the two organizations. The partnership came about through the LINK (Learning and Innovation Network for Knowledge and Solutions) program, the third round of which Kenyatta University lecturer Dr. Kennedy Mwetu won in June 2012. The MOU marks the beginning of a relationship that will hopefully move beyond LINK Round III and spawn many more LINK partnerships. Kenyatta University Dean of the School of Agriculture and Enterprise Development Prof. Waceke Wanjohi expressed her hope that this would be the case, as did Sara Farley.

More information and updates coming soon. […]
