At the stakeholder engagement on the Anti-trafficking using Satellite Technology for Uganda’s Sustainability (ASTUS) project this morning, I have emphasized the need for Makerere researchers to work jointly with Government and Non-Governmental Organizations as well as international partners in order to get the necessary impact. I thank the UK Space Agency who funded the project, the University of Nottingham our main collaborators, Airbus and all government and non-government agencies for their participation in the project.
WHS Regional Meeting Africa 2021: My Message
Over 400 PhDs Courtesy of Swedish Collaboration
During the tenure of the Ambassador of Sweden to Uganda, H.E. Per Lindgärde and his predecessor H.E. H.E. Urban Andersson, Makerere accomplished the most ambitious staff development programme at any University, training more than 400 PhDs and many Masters. The capacity for research built is enormous. Thank you Sweden.
Bidding Farewell to H.E. Per Lindgärde
There was joy and yet a hard time when I bid farewell to H.E. Per Lindgarde, the Swedish Ambassador this afternoon. Makerere has enjoyed a wonderful relationship with the Embassy during his tenure and I wish him good health and success in his next assignment.
