Kathleen Galvin, director of CSU’s The Africa Center visits Rwanda with Smart Village Minigrid Team

The Africa Center's director Dr. Kathleen Galvin recently traveled to Rwanda to join the Smart Village Minigrid Team, led by CSU's Dan Zimmerle.  The purpose of her visit was to confirm a partnership through a memorandum of understanding (MOU)  The MOU outlines plans for research and education exchanges between the Rwandan government, the University of Rwanda and CSU. The partnership was seeded by a two-year-old project led by researchers from the CSU Energy Institute and the School of Global Environmental Sustainability (SoGES)/Africa Center.

To learn more about the project please read this article from CSU's Source, "It’s official: CSU, government of Rwanda are partners in smart, sustainable development".
