Raportit tapahtumista

A good way to start a fruitful collaboration

Last 29th of October 2022 the African Academic Night took place in Turku and lucky for us the CCFF was invited to participate and meet the speakers as well as the participants.

First, I must address my sincere gratitude and congratulate Pascal Doh, President of the organizing Committee of DIANA Ry, the Diaspora Academic Network for Africa in Finland, who put together this night’s program and succeeded in gathering so many people.

The program was very interesting, thanks to the speakers who gently explain their works with simple drawings and words for the persons like me who did not complete a full scientific PhD.

It is overwhelming to see how many brilliant talents are studying and working in Finland to develop the most extraordinary technologies in all kinds of fields such as pharmaceutical, mechanical engineering for transport and energy manufacturing or agriculture (and I must have forgotten some).

Pascal has succeeded to gather eminent professors, students, and researchers from all over Finland who are working to build our future in technology but also in living together better, welcoming talents from all Africa Congratulations also to the Finns who are contributing very actively on the cooperation between universities from both continents.

As a business partner, the CCFF is ready to help in building or reinforcing the existing bridges between the countries in very operational terms. We are welcoming companies to come forward to explore the wide possibilities this academic cooperation represents, there is so much to do and so many opportunities!

CCFF is part of CCI International, the French network of foreign chamber of Commerce who is present in 13 African countries (and in 125 countries in the world) offering their support and expertise to all companies who wishes to explore the continent (or even the world).
