Co-creation Hub’s AUIA Associate Programme seeks Student Ambassadors 2018

Deadline: June 25, 2018

The AUIA Associate Programme (AAP), powered by Co-creation Hub, seeks student ambassadors. Are you a student of an African Tertiary institution interested in gathering data for academic research purposes? Interested in becoming a student ambassador for your University? Apply now!

AAP, by Co-creation Hub is a strategic associate programme aimed at engaging students of African tertiary institutions as ambassadors to build the AUIA research repository by spotting groundbreaking academic research projects from their Universities. The programme will engage students in the process of spotting and gathering data on academic research projects across Nigeria.

This programme equips university students with the skills to gather news and data on innovative research projects within their universities. The goal is to keep people up to date on the latest academia research projects.

Research at Universities in Nigeria and Africa as a whole is very often under-reported locally either because academics see their work as private or they are unaware of the platforms and opportunities available for them to showcase their work. AAP exists to try and improve this by getting students excited about academic research and tasking them with spotting academic research projects worth sharing from their Universities.
