Digitisation of education is a top priority of Phase III of the CEMEREM Programme
La numérisation de l’enseignement est une priorité absolue de la Phase III du programme CEMEREM.
The “African Excellence” programme was developed in 2008 to improve academic education qualitatively and quantitatively in a sustainable manner. On the one hand, the programme is designed to increase the quality of teaching and to widen the research environment of selected universities in sub-Saharan Africa, with the cooperative support of German universities. On the other hand, it was also designed to train students to develop ‘soft skills’ such as leadership, decision-making and managerial abilities, in addition to supporting their personal development. The main goal of this programme, therefore, is to educate Africa’s future decision-makers, leaders and experts – for the continent’s benefit. In order to meet these goals, the DAAD supports cooperation projects – with a budget from the German Federal Foreign Office – between German and African universities. Consequently, the partner universities in each project can flexibly use the different sponsorship instruments offered by the DAAD. For instance, they can put them toward training courses for teaching staff from African universities, courses for administrative personnel, scholarships for studying on-site, and even to facilitate mobility opportunities for students, teaching staff and project managers. These funds can also be invested in summer schools and conference participation. more
The heart of our platform is our network of members coming from the African Centres of Excellence. This is the ideal space to connect with other members and to learn more about their areas of expertise as well as their achievements.

One of our main pillars is the creation and dissemination of digital modules. There are several types of modules: Generic and specific skills mini-modules as well as discipline-specific modules of the African Centres of Excellence.
