The Biennial Conference is RUFORUM’s most comprehensive meeting for the diversity of stakeholders in both agriculture and higher education sectors. It is especially dedicated to graduate students and their supervisors, grantees in RUFORUM member universities and alumni. It is a platform for peer review, quality control, mentorship, networking and shared learning.

The Sixth African Higher Education Week
The 2018 Biennial conference is unique with a focus on university-agriculture community transformation. It will provide an opportunity for participants to showcase their innovations as part of enhancing the university-farmer community partnership and engagement for meaningful innovation. The proposed overall theme of the 2018 Conference is “Aligning African Universities to accelerate attainment of Africa’s Agenda 2063”. The Conference will therefore provide opportunity for participants to showcase the frontiers of their innovation and entrepreneurship for universities to demonstrate their repositioning to responding to national and regional development needs including those of farmers and other allied sectors. It further brings the private sector to explore how it can contribute to social entrepreneurship and actively participate in accelerating university and farming communities’ transformation to sustaining the enterprise development in Africa. The Conference will engage development partners and governments to articulate innovative funding mechanisms that propel university transformation for impact. Further, the youth and young researchers will be exposed to senior professionals, researchers and mentors that will further accelerate innovative research careers, strengthen innovation for community impact, and strengthen research communication, publication and networking. Through the Young African Entrepreneurs Series, the youth and young researchers will have the opportunity to be exposed to the practical entrepreneurship skills capacity enhancement and mentorship.

The main venue will be Kenyatta International Conference Centre (KICC) from 22nd to 26th October 2018.
