Three years of collaboration in the basic sciences: Uganda-Norway

Lillethun, Endre

Abstract:
This chapter focuses on a collaboration project in the Basic Sciences between Makerere University, Uganda and the University of Bergen, Norway. The author discusses the need for infrastructure in the basic sciences in Uganda, and the purpose of the " Basic Science for Technological Development in Uganda" project.  The programme aims at the development of institutions and requires that all university departments should have appointed coordinators in the North as well as in the South.  The activities carried out in each department are described which have to be communicated with their partner in the North.  Lillethun also expresses the importance of the internet and e mail facilities for students and staff in the South in order to maintain contact internationally with other researchers.
