International Collaboration

International Collaboration and Research

MENELIK develops strong and meaningful links with universities around the world with those in the DRC to study issues of global significance, and we work with the best partners and scholars around the world. Universities researchers are at the forefront of research into many of the global challenges facing us today, including major initiatives on subjects as diverse as ageing, tropical diseases, climate change, and global governance. To deliver on its mission of educational and research excellence and societal impact, MENELIK is building connections with collaborators around the world as strong as those enjoyed by any university. Most of this collaboration happens through the hundreds (or perhaps thousands) of research links developed by academics with partners abroad, right across the humanities, social sciences, natural sciences, and medicine. MENELIK is currently discussing the possibility of entering into a small number of important institutional relationships, including bilateral links with other universities, and membership of university associations.

At MENELIK, our work is an international enterprise. We collaborate every day with colleagues at universities around the world – working on research, organising conferences and giving seminar papers. In many cases, this is because the best collaborator in a specialised field is located abroad. In many other cases, this is because another location offers unique research opportunities.

The vast majority of such collaborations grow bottom-up from relationships forged at the individual or departmental level. As a result, you are advise once you have identified your areas of academic interest in the DRC, to contact us for further discussion as we legally representing a number of Congolese universities in the UK and the EU.
