Africa’s first and biggest network of centers of excellence, http://codesiconsulting.com/wp-admin/includes/import.php the African Institute for Mathematical Sciences (AIMS), http://culinaryhealthfund.org/wp-content/plugins/slideshow-jquery-image-gallery/views/slideshowpluginslideshowslide/backend_video.php has partnered with the Government of Rwanda, http://cusanus-studierende.de/wp-content/plugins/contact-form-7/includes/pipe.php to launch a campus in Kigali.

AIMS, an ecosystem of pan-African transformation will leverage scientific innovation, learning and research to apply solutions to the continent’s challenges.

The official launch which took place at the Kigali Convention Centre (KCC), was presided over by Rwandan President Paul Kagame as the guest of honour.

“We are collaborating with AIMS to develop an ecosystem of pan-African institutions with a transformative agenda. We all recognise that AIMS’ education model is an important tool for development & progress on our continent.” Kagame said at the gathering.

The first AIMS centre of excellence was opened in Cape Town, South Africa, founded by Professor Neil Turok in 2003.

The network prioritizes international class education for Africa’s most valuable resource, its youth, for the development of Africa and to the benefit of society. The institute has since opened up six education centers of excellence across the continent with the latest in Rwanda’s capital, Kigali.

“We are thrilled to have partnered with the government of Rwanda to continue to nurture Africa’s most talented scientific minds in mathematical sciences, creating opportunities to allow them to contribute to the continent by tangibly developing solutions to Africa’s problems, and fostering collaboration that will reverse the brain drain of our thinkers, problem-solvers and innovators,” said Thierry Zomahoun, President and CEO of AIMS.

The launch of AIMS Rwanda is a result of a partnership agreement between the government of Rwanda through the ministry of education and AIMS.

Kagame announced that after the resounding success of the NEF Global Gathering 2016 which took place in Dakar, Senegal, the second edition of the forum will be hosted in Kigali in 2018.
