Nkabom project underway [fr]
The French Embassy launched the call for applications for the NKABOM joint research project in February 2019 as part of its preparations towards a Hubert Curien Franco-Ghanaian Agreement. This NKABOM program seeks to foster and support scientific cooperation between France and Ghana by funding mobility of French and Ghanaian researchers working on joint common projects.
A total of 10 applications were submitted, out of which 3 teams were selected, which will be implemented from May to December 2019.
Under the framework of this research program, Prof. Hervé Franklin from University le Havre Normandie has arrived in Ghana on 27th May 2019 for a week-long visit to meet with his Ghanaian counterparts at the Department of Computer Science in University of Ghana and officially commence collaborative work on their joint research project; "Wireless Communication in Complex and Inhomogeneous Environments using Acoustic and Electromagnetic Waves".
The Ghanaian team comprises of the project coordinator, Dr. Ferdinand Apietu Katsriku, Dr. Abdulai Jamal-Deen, Head of Department, Dr. Isaac Wiafe as well as Ms Akon Ekpezu and M. Frank Banaseka, PhD students. In a meeting with Dr. Sonia Couprie, the technical Advisor for Higher Education Cooperation and research, the working group expressed great delight and enthusiasm for the project and are eagerly looking out for avenues to broaden and deepen this partnership. Two Ghanaian researchers will go to Le Havre next September to further the research work.
