Senior Executive Attachments for Technology Uptake in African Universities

In Africa, only a few higher education institutions have business incubators as centres to support the formation of start-up businesses. Whereas these incubators may not necessarily be established by or around universities, earmarking university properties as science parks to nurture academic spin-offs and start-up companies is a positive step towards commercialising technologies stemming from university laboratories, and employing thousands of people who may be churn out of these universities as young entrepreneurs.

In 2015, AAU sponsored two-member teams from two of its member universities to undertake executive attachments for learning outcomes on promoting technology uptake in their institutions.

Missions Reports have been submitted by the beneficiary institutions, namely:

1. Institute of Agricultural Research and Development (IARD), University of Port Harcourt, Nigeria

2. Abubakar Tafawa Balewa University, Bauchi, Nigeria
