Cambridge Global Challenges Round Tables give Cambridge researchers the opportunity to talk about research relating to the UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).

The Round Tables, which prioritise participation by early career researchers, are informal and discursive.

Speakers are encouraged to present on the progress of their research, and any difficulties they are facing working in developing countries. GCI will try to help with the latter where possible.

(Details about previous Round Tables can be found here.)


Confirmed Talk

Advancing the impact of University-generated knowledge in the Southern Africa Development Community (SADC) through academia-industry partnership – a collaboration between research institutions in Botswana, Namibia and Mozambique and University of Cambridge

The programme addresses the advancement of academia-industry ecosystems that benefit local communities in the SADC region and the knowledge-transfer systems and practices that underlie them –with the focus of specific cases of research in Botswana, Mozambique and Namibia that, through collaboration with industry, have had or have the potential to be locally applied. The talk invites the participation of members of the Cambridge global challenges community in the programme.
