NTU Africa and Middle East Network

Our network brings together NTU staff and postgraduate/PhD students working in the Africa and Middle East regions.

About the network

AMEN NTU Africa-Middle East Network

The network offers a platform for staff and students to:

  • share information;
  • establish cross-discipline research groups;
  • assist in making connections and to offer advice and guidance to colleagues wishing to branch out into a new region.

The primary focus of the network is to support, facilitate and enhance research, however we encourage all staff with an interest in Africa and/or the Middle East to join us.

As a member you'll receive regular news bulletins with updates, alerts about funding calls, project news and information about our events. If you have any information you wish to share with our members, or news about an event of your own, please do contact us so that we can let everyone know about it.
