      Africa Research and Outreach seminar

      One particular highlight of Africa Week was the Africa Research and Outreach seminar on Monday 3 October, which focussed on the activities in Africa by University academics.

      The University has an important and long historical connection with Africa from early pioneering graduates to current teaching and research.

      Throughout the week (3 - 8 October 2016) there is an exciting series of events which will provide a forum for students, staff and the public to share ideas and best practice. It is also an opportunity to find out more and discuss aspects of African research, knowledge exchange and cultural activities taking place at the University of Edinburgh.
