NTU Africa and Middle East Network
Our network brings together NTU staff, Postgraduate Researchers (PGRs) and Postgraduate students working in the Africa and Middle East regions.
About the network
The Network is committed to advancing the university's international research agenda in Africa and the Middle East. Our primary goal is to establish new partnerships, build relationships with international collaborators, foster collaboration, and create educational opportunities. The network is dedicated to cultivating partnerships with institutions and individuals who share its commitment to support the generation of knowledge and impact.
Additionally, the network is focused on supporting early career researchers who will become future research leaders driving success and sustainability of international research initiatives.
As a network, we believe that our efforts to promote and drive international research collaboration in Africa and the Middle East will have a significant impact on the academic community. We are committed to fostering a culture of collaboration, creativity, and innovation that will help us achieve our goals and make a lasting contribution to NTU international research. NTU's University, reimagined strategy emphasizes the importance of Connecting Globally. Our aim is to foster a network that facilitates the exchange of knowledge and insights, ultimately benefiting the entire NTU community. By transcending geographical borders and boundaries, this network will play a vital role in enhancing our global connectivity.
