organised by GEKEF
From Saturday 17th September 2011 to Sunday 18th September 2011
Some of the editors of the Ethiopian e-Journal for Research and Innovation Foresight (Ee-JRIF) from UK and Scandinavia, have taken the first step to try to connect the human and social capital of Ethiopia with that of the diaspora and have initiated a Global Ethiopian Knowledge Exchange Forum (GEKEF). The aim of GEKEF is to facilitate a sustainable exchange of knowledge in order to gather systematically and embed such resources in the fabric of Ethiopian communities wherever they are in the world to create enduring networks that stimulate continuous research and creative thinking for innovation to help improve the lives of the Ethiopian people everywhere. GEKEF now send out an invitation to all members of the Anglo-Ethiopian Society to attend the first International Multidisciplinary Knowledge Exchange Conference which will be held at London South Bank University on 17 - 18 September 2011.
The conference aims to create a forum for all researchers from a variety of disciplines specifically to Ethiopians and friends of Ethiopia around the globe including those in Africa, Europe, North America who have particular interest in the area of knowledge exchange and communications. This first conference will create an opportunity for participants mainly to communicate and break their isolation by extending research and knowledge and sustain systematic future interaction.
Attendance to the conference is free of charge and refreshments and lunch during the 2 days events will be provided. If you are interested, please complete the online booking form as soon as you can.
The conference will be held at The Abbey Conference Centre, which is on the first floor of the London Road Building (building 12 on the London South Bank University Campus Map. A floor plan of the London Road Building can be found here.
