The Association of African Universities, with the support of OBREAL, is set to organise the 2023 edition of the Conference of Rectors, Vice-Chancellors, and Presidents of African Universities (COREVIP) from July 4 to 8. The event will take place in Windhoek, Namibia. And is expected to bring together over 800 participants from various regions around the world.

The conference will provide a platform for delegates to discuss excellence, successful initiatives, interventions, and outcomes in African higher education. Attendees will have the opportunity to engage with high-level government representatives. On this occasion we count with Mohammed Belhocine, the Commissioner for Education, Science, and Technology of the African Union, and Jaime Perczyk, the Minister of Education of Argentina.

COREVIP serves as the African framework for the follow-up of the Interregional Dialogue on Interregional Cooperation in Education and Development. That is, a conference organised by OBREAL earlier this year in Buenos Aires, Argentina. In that sense, the AAU accepted the role, recognising the importance of fostering collaboration and partnerships in African higher education.

The future of South-South-North cooperation

The organization of COREVIP, by AAU with the support of OBREAL, will have representatives from prominent organisations. For example the Asociación Colombiana de Universidades (Colombia), the Asociación Nacional de Universidades e Instituciones de Educación Superior (Mexico), CAPES (Brazil), the Ministry of Education of Argentina and the Consejo Interuniversitario Nacional (Argentina). But also the Latin American and Caribbean Space for Higher Education -ENLACES-, the Inter-University Council for East Africa, the Southern African Regional Universities Association, the Association of African Universities, the German Academic Exchange Service, and the European University Association will participate in the conference.

One of the key focuses of the event will be the future of South-South-North cooperation in education and development. With representatives from Africa, Europe, South America, the Caribbean, Asia, and North America in attendance, the conference aims to foster dialogue and collaboration among these regions.

The event promises to be an enriching experience for all participants. They will be able to exchange knowledge, share best practices, and explore opportunities for further advancement in African higher education. Therefore, OBREAL is thrilled to support the organization of COREVIP 2023.
