Funding for all 15 research and innovation projects has been finalized, including an Interuniversity Innovation Pole for the implementation of a green approach to fighting against Antimicrobial Resistance in the DRC (PI-RAM).
Coordinated by the University of Kinshasa, in close collaboration with the Catholic University of the Graben (in Butembo) and the Official University of Bukavu, this Interuniversity Innovation Pole aims to develop fifteen (15) green technological innovations likely to solve environmental and health problems related to antimicrobial resistance, which represents a global health problem, by valuing notably local and indigenous knowledge.
PI-RAM is part of the PDTIE project (Project for the Deployment of Environmental Technologies and Innovations for Sustainable Development and Poverty Reduction), one of 12 initiatives supported by the ACP Innovation Fund (funded by the European Union). The PDTIE is coordinated by the Institut de la Francophonie pour le développement durable (IFDD), in partnership with Kongo University in the DRC, Eden Africa and Ingénieurs Sans Frontières in Cameroon.
