Fostering Swiss-South African Collaboration in ERI

An integral role of the Swiss Embassy is to deepen the Swiss-South Africa collaborations beyond the joint research projects in the SSAJRP together with the Swiss Leading House for Sub-Sahara Africa. This is done through academic delegations, dialogue platforms, alumni events, university outreach and networking events. These instruments often result in outcomes such as institutional agreements, new partnerships, joint research projects and joint teaching degrees.
