The Association of African Universities (AAU), the continent’s apex higher education body, upon review of its flagship training workshops, selected University-Industry Linkages as one of the thematic workshops to be run between 2016 – 2018.

In line with this, the University-Industry Linkages workshop series has been implemented primarily to facilitate technology uptake in Africa’s higher education institutions.

The Lusaka workshop was the third in the series.  This was hosted by the  University of Lusaka, Zambia, from 12 – 14 July, 2016 and was run on the following modules:
 Technology Uptake in African Universities
 Intellectual Property Rights
 Entrepreneurship in African Universities
