One of ZEF's longest Teaching-and-Education program in West Africa coming to an end after 15 years

November 23, 2023.  

The ZEF-led Ghanaian-German Centre for Development Studies (GGCDS) has held its last Annual Collaboration Workshop on November 9, 2023 at the Institute of Statistical Social and Economic Research (ISSER) at the University of Ghana in Accra. See program here.

The event gathered alumni, students, program coordinators, and partners in order to connect, interact, and reflect on the impacts of the GGCDS on lives and careers. It was the final edition of the annual meeting of GGCDS stakeholders. It also marked the culmination of a fruitful 15-year partnership between ISSER, which has been the main GGCDS partner in Ghana, and the German Academic Exchange Service (DAAD), which has been funding the program over the past 15 years.

Special guest at the event was Prof. Ernest Aryeetey, secretary-general of the African Research Universities Alliance and former Director of ISSER and Vice-Chancellor of the University of Ghana. Other key speakers were Prof. Robert Osei, Dean of the School of Graduate Studies, University of Ghana and Mr. Felix Barnes of the DAAD Information Center in Accra.
