The Association of African Universities (AAU) has promised to align its activities with the African Union’s (AU) 2063 Agenda on education. Central to this was the Continental Education Strategy for Africa (CESA-2025) and the Science, Technology and Innovation Strategy for Africa (STISA-2024.)
The resolutions were taken at the 14th conference of the association in Accra, the Ghanaian capital. The event also coincided with the golden celebration of the founding of the AAU.
In a communiqué in Abuja, the AAU urged African governments to improve on their investment in science and technology. It said this was in line with AU’s agenda of integrated, prosperous and peaceful Africa, driven by its citizens and representing a dynamic force in the global arena.
