UESD explores more Collaborations

The Pro Vice-Chancellor, Prof. Edward Wiafe Debrah has presided over a meeting with Dr. Maria Panta, a Ghanaian-based Cypriot Sustainable Architecture Lecturer at the School of Architecture, Kwame Nkrumah University of Science and Technology (KNUST), and Mr. Leslie Agyare, the CEO of Three Mountains Cocoa, an organic cocoa production company in Ghana.

The meeting, held in the Council Chamber was also attended by the Registrar, Mrs Mary Abena Agyepong, some Deans Heads of Department Heads, and Senior Members. It aimed to strike a possible collaboration between the University and the visitors.

This is Dr. Panta’s second visit to UESD. As an expert in Sustainable Architecture, Dr. Panta’s interest is to help design an Inter-University Lecturer Exchange between Lecturers and experts in Greece and UESD to augment the staff strength at the Department of Built Environment, UESD. It will also include students’ internship. 

Taking his turn, Mr. Agyare said, his company admits students for internship and equips them with knowledge in organic fertilizer production and best farming practices. They are also deployed into the communities to share knowledge with the farmers.

He said, students from UESD can also be admitted under its CoBEL programme. Another area of collaboration is the formation of a joint team between the University and the Company to research the chances of replicating the organic fertilizers currently used for cocoa production for mango production in Somanya.

Responding, the Pro-Vice Chancellor Prof. Wiafe Debrah expressed the University’s readiness to collaborate with all institutions and individuals whose visions, missions, and goals align with that of the university. He said the university is poised to support the projects in any way possible to see to their success.
