Our Values & Objectives

The Harmonization of Entrepreneurship Education for Sustainable Development in Africa (HEED-Africa) project strives to foster the development of student and staff academic exchange through a systematic academic mobility flows framework in joint study, researches, academic activities, mobility agreements across five regional higher education institutions. The main objective of HEED-Africa is to develop and implement harmonized knowledge ecosystems in entrepreneurship through embedding entrepreneurship education in the thematic fields of business, administration and law, through this enhance individual capacities and institutional capabilities for entrepreneurship education delivery in sub-Saharan Africa. It also aims to create the learning conditions that make it easy for tutors and students alike to increase their ability as graduates to become job creators rather than job seekers, thereby promote sustainable development and ultimately contribute to poverty reduction in Africa.

Heed-Africa was selected as one of the European Commission partners that will deploy and execute the Intra-Africa Academic Mobility Scheme within Africa. The HEED-Africa research projects are expected to provide unique empirical insights into inter-institutional processes for harmonising entrepreneurship programmes through joint publications and conferences papers. Overall, it supports the development of a more harmonized pedagogy for teaching, researching and transferability of entrepreneurship education best practices for graduate employment across the continent. Our core objectives include the following:
