On 6 October, more than 200 university staff members from universities in the EAC region received their graduation certificates for a training programme on “Research Cycle and Digital Skills”. The training was designed and delivered by Pan Africa Christian (PAC) University in Kenya.
The tailor-made digital skills training had been initiated and organised by German Development Cooperation via GIZ as an activity under the COVID-19 Response Measures being funded by the German Federal Ministry for Economic Cooperation and Development (BMZ) under the EAC Secretariat project “Digital Skills for an Innovative East African Industry” (dSkills@EA).
The training was designed and delivered by Pan Africa Christian (PAC) University in Kenya, after winning the highly competitive tender, which attracted bids from numerous universities in East Africa. Through PAC University, the project has successfully trained system administrators, IT technicians and lecturers from across universities in East Africa, with five universities per country having benefited from the training.
