The University of Ghana led by Dr. Albert Ahenkan, Professor Justice Bawole and Professor Joshua Yindenaba Abor of the University of Ghana Business School (UGBS) and its consortium of five African partners have won a 1.3 Million Euro grant from the European Commission within the framework of the EU-Intra Africa Mobility Programme to implement the project titled "Harmonisation of Entrepreneurship Education for Sustainable Development in Africa (HEED-Africa)" for a period of 5 years.

The Universities which form part of this Consortium are the University of Ghana, Makerere University (Uganda), Kyambogo University (Uganda), University of Johannesburg (South Africa) as partner institution, the University of Wolverhampton (UK) as the EU technical partner and Addis Ababa University (Ethiopia) as the consortium lead.

The objective of the project is to facilitate academic mobility to enhance individual capacities and institutional capabilities in entrepreneurship across thematic disciplines in Africa. This programme will offer scholarships for Master's and PhD students as well as capacity building for academic and administrative staff of the various partner Universities. It is also expected to foster further cooperation in areas of research and education among partner universities.

UGBS congratulates Dr. Albert Ahenkan, Professor Justice Bawole and Professor Joshua Yindenaba Abor for this achievement.
