We regularly create opportunities for new research collaboration and public debate including through our Sussex-Ghana Global Dialogues, the Sussex-Ghana Partnership on Improving Basic Education Systems in Africa, and most recently through an Expert Workshop on Science for Implementing the Sustainable Development Goals in Accra, and an interuniversity workshop on COVID-19 impacts on global poverty alleviation.

As we look to deepen mutual understanding of each other’s strengths and aspirations, as well as economic, cultural and social contexts we are delighted to be delivering Summer opportunities for Sussex students in Accra.
