The EduLink II project, which is coordinated by Egerton University in Kenya, aims to strengthen training of African university students to ready them for positions within the continent’s agricultural labour markets. To do this, it will deploy an “online, interactive technology platform” for tasks such as mentorship and supervision. The multi-partner project includes AGRINATURA, the Network of European Agricultural Universities, and RUFORUM, the Regional Universities Forum for Capacity Building in Agriculture, Makerere University, based in Uganda, and Kenya’s Jomo Kenyatta University of Agriculture and Technology.
