The British Council is delighted to announce the winners of funding for the inaugural Innovation for African Universities programme (IAU) 2021.
Over 50 applications were assessed through a rigorous process of multistage evaluation, and 24 projects were selected to be a part of the programme. Our warmest congratulations to the partners that have been successful in getting the grant.
Many of the projects represent a new generation of young inspiring student-led projects, addressing local and global challenges. They reflect extensive understanding of community needs and problems. The support and interest in the IAU programme have been remarkable and we thank everyone who participated.
The Centre of Excellence (CoE) team, comprised of City, University London, University of Nairobi and ChangeSchool, will contact the successful projects in the coming days to kick off an exciting year of activity and achievement.
