Case Study | Short Course in Project Management for Rwanda Housing Authority and Guest Organisations
Kigali, Rwanda, 19-21 September 2016
Professor Andrew Gale and Dr Paul Chan from the School of MACE delivered a three day short course in Project Management in Kigali, Rwanda. The course was hosted by the Rwandan Housing Authority and involved seven further Rwandan organisations and was funded by the University of Manchester's Equity and Merit Scholarship Programme and the School of MACE.
Dr Chan and Professor Gale are planning the next short course in Kagali for March 2017. Additionally two research grant applications have arisen as a direct consequence of this initiative. One proposal is being led by Dr Martin Gillie, for £1.2m, under the recent EPSRC Global Development Challenges call. It will address the resilience of buildings to extreme loads in ODA counties.
