ASIM
ASIM is a collaboration between four African universities and one EU Technical partner with a primary objective of developing education, training, and research capacity for African professionals to enhance the delivery of Africa’s sustainable infrastructure.  
The primary aim of this project, therefore, is to   increase the talent pool of expertise in infrastructure and to develop the capacity of African HEI to deliver sustainable infrastructure education. 
A consortium made up of Ardhi University, Covenant University, University of Johannesburg, University of Malawi – The Polytechnic and Leeds Beckett University participated and was awarded a grant on the Intra-Africa Academic Mobility Scheme Call Reference No. EACEA/07/2020. The award was on the proposed action entitled Africa Sustainable Infrastructure Mobility (ASIM).
The Intra-Africa Academic Mobility Scheme supports higher education cooperation between countries in Africa and aims to promote sustainable development by increasing the availability of trained and qualified high-level professional manpower in Africa. The primary objective is to improve the skills and competences of students and staff through enhanced mobility between African countries. The Intra-Africa Academic Mobility Scheme is set up under the Pan-African Programme (Development Cooperation Instrument) and is based on
ASIM partners
