AIMS was established by Prof Neil Turok in 2003 in South Africa and, in addition to the Centre in South Africa, currently has Centres in: Cameroon, Senegal, Ghana, and Tanzania, with the goal to be in 15 countries by 2023.
A partnership Agreement will be signed between the Government of Rwanda and AIMS-NEI on Tuesday February 2nd 2016 at 3pm in MINEDUC with the following objectives:
– Launch AIMS Rwanda, a pan-African centre of excellence in mathematical science.
Benefits for Rwanda and the Region
The establishment of an AIMS Centre in Rwanda will support to build Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) expertise, key benefits include:
The Hon Papias Malimba Musafiri said “I greatly welcome this important partnership with AIMS-NEI as this will greatly enhance Rwanda’s ambitions to strengthen the capacity in science mathematics and engineering in support of Rwanda’s and the Region’s development.”
Thierry Zomahoun, President and CEO of AIMS-NEI stated “At the invitation of President Paul Kagame, AIMS will join the science and innovation ecosystem that the government is building with the goal of being a continental hub in technology. AIMS sees Rwanda as a conducive environment for its initiatives and we look forward to collaborating and supporting the local and regional research community.”
The target is for the AIMS Rwanda Centre of Excellence to open August 2016.
