Danish Ambassador visits Gulu University

On Thursday the 29th of September 2022 Gulu University's top management team led by Prof Openjuru George Ladaah the University Vice-Chancellor met the Danish Ambassador, Her Excellency Signe Winding Albjerg who paid a courtesy call to check on Danish projects at Gulu University

The Danish Ambassador was accompanied by Hanna Line Jakobsen the Deputy Director at Novo Nordish Foundation who had a lengthy discussion with the staff of the University on the strategic areas for a possible partnership.

The Danish-funded projects in Gulu University include Building Stronger Universities Project (BSU) that Gulu University has been part of while twining with Danish universities in the area of research and innovation including supporting staff development in post graduate studies.

The BSU project has also been the cornerstone of “Unlocking the potential of Green Charcoal Innovations to Mitigate Climate Change in Northern Uganda or UPCHAIN project, which will bring together researchers in both arts and science fields to develop innovative technologies and equipment with the aim of producing briquettes (green charcoal) from agricultural residues in a viable way, an alternative to firewood and black charcoal. Green charcoal should contribute to stopping deforestation, reducing smoke-induced health issues as well as creating local employment.

Gulu University committed working together with the Danish embassy in transforming the post-war conflict in Northern Uganda.
