The project contributes to the improvement of quality of Ethiopian higher education in the field of agricultural technologies, as well as to the improvement of Hawassa University’s professional prestige at the international level. These objectives are achieved through increasing the quality of teachers’ and students’ scientific research activities at the Institute of Technology (IoT), Hawassa University.
The complex development of scientific and research capacities will be achieved through a collaboration of scientists from the Czech University of Life Sciences Prague (CULS) and IoT. Czech and Ethiopian scientist will participate in a joint science & research (S&R) team. The project further aims at raising awareness about the importance of science and research, and at providing training sessions for members of the S&R team and for teachers (and students) of IoT.

Research activities, as well as the analysis of research results and publication development will be supervised by CULS representatives.
