Besides lack of internship opportunities, university students and faculties are struggling to translate academic knowledge into research that answers a need. It is no longer enough to conduct academic research that gets filed in university libraries. On the other hand, development partners and government departments that are working with rural communities are struggling to establish sustainable entry and exit strategies. The private sector is also struggling to design evidence-based market-driven business models.
If you share the above concerns and you are passionate about translating university research into a career path, get in touch with Knowledge Transfer Africa (KTA). We have started offering guidance and mentorship for university students and faculties keen to develop research themes in agricultural ecosystems, rural development and financial modelling. KTA has also started assisting development organizations to design sustainable programmes. The private sector is also being assisted to design market-driven business models.
