Germany and Kenya sign declaration of intent to establish Eastern African-German University of Applied Sciences

Germany and Kenya have signed a declaration of intent to establish an “Eastern African-German University of Applied Sciences” based on the practice-oriented German university model. Germany’s contribution to building the planned university will be financed by the DAAD with funding from the German Federal Foreign Office. The courses will be designed to address the professional training needs in Eastern Africa and the current academic, economic and developmental requirements of the region’s universities. The academic concept will be practice-oriented and rely on close cooperation between the universities and the business sector. The university should serve as a model for the entire region and encourage other Eastern African nations to re-orientate their university systems.
