Towards ARUA – The Guild Clusters of Excellence

13th February 2023

Since 2018, the African Research Universities Alliance (ARUA) and The Guild of European Research-Intensive Universities have established a close partnership, at the heart of which has been a joint appreciation that we can – and must – address global challenges affecting the African and European continents much more effectively if we develop new, long-term partnerships based on equity.

Both networks have underlined that we need to strengthen the long-term capacities of African science, and that this required new types of science collaboration that goes beyond short-term collaboration, invests in academic careers at all stages, and includes investment in research infrastructures.
