Senegal's Minister of Higher Education, Research and Innovation, Mary Teuw NIANE, was received on Wednesday 14 November 2018 in Paris by Agreenium's Chairperson of the Board of Directors, Marion Guillou and its Director Claude Bernhard. The meeting provided an opportunity to discuss the progress of ongoing projects and identify new perspectives.
Agreenium is currently developing several cooperation projects with Senegal in the field of higher education and research: support for Ussein University to set up training courses, shared recruitment of Senegalese life sciences students in Agreenium member engineering schools in France and the development of digital campuses in life sciences in partnership with the "Université virtuelle du Sénégal" (UVS), the "Agence universitaire de la Francophonie" (AUF) and Ussein University. The establishment of the Franco-Senegalese campus at the highest level between the two countries, whose Steering Committee is meeting this week in Paris, has created an encouraging context for the development of these projects.
