    Dear all,
    This webinar might be of interest to colleagues interested in building global collaboration and partnership in the field of higher education and research in Africa.
    RUFORUM is organising a high level online convening that will bring together policy makers, thought leaders, experts and RUFORUM’s partners to dialogue and reflect on the past & present, and envision a transformed higher education sector that meets the global, continental, regional and national requisite skills and knowledge in agriculture, science, technology and innovation for sustainable development. Specifically, the high-level convening will provide an opportunity to: 
    1. To share experiences and lessons on past and current partnerships in higher education in Africa and globally; 
    2. Identify new focus areas and approaches for strengthening collaboration in higher education; and, 
    3. To explore possible and available financing mechanisms to support existing & future higher education initiatives and partnerships. 
    I think this is a good opportunity to explore some of the ideas and discussions from the  Sixth African Higher Education Week and the RUFORUM Biennial Conference 2018 in Nairobi. I thank the Government of Kenya and RUFORUM universities for inviting me as lead speaker to address on the topic of  “Harnessing the digital potential to drive  higher education transformation in Africa” .
