Chair of Logistics explored potentials of future cooperation with universities and industry in Ethiopia

From July 22nd to July 27th, 2019 the Chair of Logistics was on a fact finding mission to explore potentials of future cooperation with universities and industry in Ethiopia. During that time, fruitful discussions with the Addis Ababa University (AAU) as well as the Mekele University (MU) took place. Additionally, the team visited industrial parks for textile manufacturers as well as automotive suppliers around Mekele. Moreover, in-depth discussions about logistics challenges of Ethiopia were initiated with the Transport Authority Ethiopia, GIZ and DAAD as well as the German Embassy in Ethiopia and will be continued.

The team also initiated a first workshop to develop a working plan for the recently launched DAAD funded research project “IPLOGE – Integration of Practice-oriented Logistics Education in Ethiopia”. During this project, local case studies at companies from the food and textile industry operating in Ethiopia will be conducted and integrated into university teaching at AAU to better prepare Ethiopia students for future work requirements. Additionally, industry conferences and workshops will be initiated. We will keep you posted on recent developments of that project.
