The theme of the event is “Engaging policy makers, the private sector and higher education institutions to strengthen Africa’s response to agricultural transformation and higher education and its relevance.”
One of the main papers to be submitted will be the state of higher education and scientific research in Namibia, the ministry said.
“This will help provide policy makers and the private sector with the opportunity to come together on what higher education and research institutions are doing in Namibia and the support needed to strengthen higher education and research institutions for human capital development in Namibia.”
The event will be held in collaboration with the Regional Universities Forum (RUFORUM) Secretariat and the University of Namibia.
