The need for investment in research has never been more urgent, considering the educational challenges brought by the COVID-19 pandemic. The widespread closures of education institutions and the consequent effects, especially for students from disadvantaged backgrounds, call for increased efforts to understand these challenges and mitigate their effects, to avoid losing the considerable progress which has been made in education over the last two decades.
This conference brings together education stakeholders including researchers, policy actors, donors and practitioners to share ideas on African education research funding and the way forward.
Speakers include: Dr. Samuel Asare - ESSA, Dr. Rafael Mitchell - University of Bristol, UK, Professor Tassew Woldehanna - Addis Ababa University, Ethiopia, Ms. Claudia Frittelli - Carnegie Corporation, US & Professor Coumba Touré Kane - Dakar Cheikh Anta Diop University, Senegal
