The Delft University of Technology and the Ethiopian Institute of Architecture, Building Construction and City Development are now collecting proposals for the African Perspectives Preparatory Conference, to take place in Addis Ababa in November 2017. 

The Faculty of Architecture and the Built Environment of the TU Delft has a vision for strengthening ties with Africa. This is because we wish to have a positive impact on African’s rapid urbanisation in the next years. In order to accomplish our vision effectively, we believe our priority is to engage with African scholars, who can inform us about the challenges of African urbanisation and can advise us on the path to follow. 

We will organise an international conference in autumn 2018, when we expect to discuss the issues and strategies identified during the Preparatory Conference to engage with relevant stakeholders in Africa. In order to prepare that conference, we would like to hear from you during the preparatory event in Addis Ababa. 

The main questions we would like to answer during this preparatory event are: 

  • What are challenges in contemporary African urbanisation? 
  • How can TU Delft engage with African institutions in order to produce a positive impact on African urbanisation? 
  • What are on-going educational experiences and research projects from which we could learn together?
