The importance of strategic partnerships features high on the Centre’s agenda. As an innovative start-up initiative, con.moz shall operate with a lean and dynamic organizational model and an effective management. Expertise is put together jointly and in a flexible manner to work on scientific and developmental projects. Teams may include academics and researchers from national, regional and international scientific academies, joined by local promising young researchers to gain a solid scientific base.
Recognizing that science and technology capacity in Mozambique is still emerging, engaging young academics and students from local faculties in projects and field research shall be an important goal in any research project. It shall connect the Centre with the reality on ground, and vice-versa offer professional and practical opportunities for promising students and faculties.
con.moz seeks active engagement in scientific networks and links to other institutions and bodies promoting science and technology training in developing countries.
