Leipzig University, Germany together with its African partners from Benin, Ghana, Kenya, Nigeria, Rwanda and Tunisia cordially invite you to take part in the ACCESS Idea Competition from 2 November to 27 November 2020.

Therefore the competition is dedicated to the question:
How can employability skills be developed and implemented in future university curriculum?
The aim of the competition is to develop and present innovative ideas designed by lecturers for lecturers and universities in Africa . Not only you as lecturer and university staff, ultimately also your students and graduates will benefit of it.
Possibilities to address the topic can range from teaching ideas and methods to the integration and establishment of university business linkages. Ideas that are eligible need to address a possible innovative approach to promote employability of graduates in the boundaries of a university curriculum.
