Nigeria has secured an opportunity for some Nigerian Universities to access funding under the European Union, EU’s Intra-Africa Mobility Scheme.

The Nigerian Universities are among the Educational institutions that would benefit from the 15 Intra-Africa Mobility Scheme Projects.

Under the initiative, the European Union would spend €27 million, allocating €1.8 million to each of the Projects in the education and healthcare sectors in Africa.

These Projects, which are to be facilitated by various Universities, aim to enhance learning mobility opportunities for Students, Trainees, and Staff across the Continent, focusing on developing high-level green and digital skills.

The participating Universities include the University of Lagos, the University of Port-Harcourt, Ebonyi State University, the Federal University of Technology, and the University of Nigeria.

The Permanent Secretary, of the Federal Ministry of Education, Mrs. Didi Walson-Jack, signed the agreement at the Global Gateway High-Level Event on Education in Brussels.

Mrs Walson-Jack said Nigeria would also benefit from the regional Team Europe Initiative on Opportunity-driven Skills, Vocational Education and Training in Africa.
