Invitation: A World of Answers - Building a Future Africa Campus

Posted on September 17, 2019

The University of Pretoria, in collaboration with Radio 702, invites you to A World of Answers. 702’s Aubrey Masango will be in conversation with Professor Stephanie Burton, Professor Bernard Slippers and Professor James Ogude talking about Building a Future Africa Campus and what it means for research excellence on the continent.

UP’s Future Africa Campus is a continental asset for developing research that lays the foundation for the industries of tomorrow and addresses the wicked challenges and stresses that Africa and the world are facing today. These include the disappearance of biodiversity, climate change, a rapidly expanding population of unemployed youth, and growing inequality. All Future Africa research and innovation programmes are aimed at achieving a brighter future, underpinned by the ethos of sustainability, diversity and equity.
