    It is an interesting event and I am very happy to participate from the one that will be conducted at Addis Ababa, Ethiopia. I filled and send the online application. So what is next expected from me?

    Really I eager to be part of workshop since one of the critical problem of African Universities is the very weak linkages between themselves and among different Industries. So I want to share experience from African Universities.

    Thank you very much.
