Print Email

The OAU ICT-driven Knowledge Park (OAK-Park), Africa Centre of Excellence (ACE), Obafemi Awolowo University, Ile-Ife is a World Bank sponsored regional hub for training in software engineering located in the beautiful campus of the Obafemi Awolowo University, Ile-Ife, Nigeria.

The ACE OAK-Park in conjunction with the Nigeria Computer Society (NCS) and the Computer Professionals (Registration Council of Nigeria) (CPN) is organising a one-day academia-industry engagement with the theme: Rethinking Academia-Industry Engagement

The discourse is the first in the series of rapprochement aimed at redefining university-industry relationship. It seeks to bridge the existing disconnect between the critical actors in knowledge economy. We hope that through this interface, the Centre will be able to showcase some of the possibilities and potentials within the Centre and explore ways which the industry can leverage on in a mutually benefiting relationship.

In the near term, we anticipate joint university-industry projects, research contracts, industry training/internship, bi-directional visits and guest lectures.

It is our pleasure to invite you to the event as a panelist. The event will be taking place at the Sheraton Hotels, Ikeja, Lagos on Wednesday 14th of March, 2018 at 9 am prompt.
