This project builds upon an existing collaboration between the University of Plymouth,
the Nelson Mandela - African Institute of Science and Technology
(NMAIST) in Arusha, Tanzania and Masinde Muliro University of Science and
Technology (MMUST), in Kakamega, Kenya.
The aim of the project is to directly benefit Kenya, which is a country listed in the category of 'Other Low Income Countries' on the DAC list. The project also focussed on benefitting Tanzania, a country listed in the category of 'Least Developed Countries' on the DAC list.
Both of our African partners have been central to the development of the project and have broadened the network of East African collaborators to include a number of new higher education institutions and commercial companies in both Kenya and Tanzania.
