Description

The project aims to support the Government of Somalia/Somaliland to enhance inclusive economic growth and reduce poverty by assisting in skill development for two key infrastructure sectors: road construction and energy services. In order to meet growing demand for skilled people in these sectors, the project upgrades the quality of education in vocational training institutes and universities and makes them more market-responsive. The role of TU/e lies in university curriculum development and staff training in electrical engineering and renewable energy services, and outfitting of lab facilities.
