MUT’s 1st Research Chair delivers an international seminar

Prof Agbola

Prof Babatunde Agbola, Chair/Professor of Human Settlement, will be bringing a Science Seminar to MUT on 21 September 2017.   Prof Agbola said: “My intention is to enhance the international exposure of MUT to science research. The seminar will discuss science plans for Africa. MUT scientists will get a chance to interact with Committee members, ask
questions and derive immense scientific and professional
benefits.” The seminar is organised by the International Council for Science (ICSU) Regional Office for Africa, in conjunction with MUT, as part of the 19th Meeting of the ICSU Regional Committee for Africa (ICSU RCA) which is chaired by Prof Agbola.

The seminar offers the platform for members of the RCA to share scientific thoughts and ideas with other scientists from institutions and organisations wherever the meeting is held. The seminar, whose theme is ICSU ROA’s Africa Science Plans and the AU Agenda 2063, will feature topical presentations on The
Health-Energy-Disaster Risk Nexus in African Cities
by members of the RCA and scientists from MUT. There will also be general discussions to explore avenues for collaboration between MUT and scientists working on the implementation of the ICSU ROA Africa Science Plans.
