NPT Project on Strengthening ICT Training and Research Capacity in the Four Public Universities in Uganda

One of the recommendations made to Nuffic in the September 2006 project mid-term review report for the project Building a Sustainable ICT Training Capacity in the Public Universities in Uganda was for Nuffic to find funds to extend this project to build on the impressive achievement. It was thus deemed useful to define a follow-up project in such a way that the projects overlap. To this effect a proposal was written leading to Nuffic awarding the four Public Universities yet another NPT project on Strengthening ICT Training and Research Capacity in the Four Public Universities in Uganda  The overall objective of the Project is to strengthen the Capacity of Makerere University Faculty of Computing and IT, the Institute of Computer Science at Mbarara University of Science and Technology, the Departments of Computer Science at Kyambogo and Gulu Universities to develop, implement and manage relevant educational and research programmes for poverty alleviation, rural and economic development.

The lead institution in the South is Makerere University with Mbarara University of Science and Technology, Gulu University and Kyambogo University as partners; and the lead institution in the North is the University of Groningen with Radboud University Nijmegen (RUN) and Eindhoven University of Technology (TUE) as the consortium partners. The target group is University staff and students in the above institutions and ICT Policy makers. The project will be implemented in a period of four (4) years and it commenced on 1st June 2007 with a maximum Nuffic grant of Euro 5,700,000. The southern partners are to contribute to the project in form of financial and material inputs such as complementary funding and equipment, physical infrastructure and human resource. Thus it is expected that at completion, the project will be worth 6,200,000 Euros. For detailed on outputs 2004 see..Download
