Virtual start in the SEED project

The SEED team with participants from InES, UBT, TU-K, UEM and Phaesun GmbH.

At the beginning of June, the project partners of the joint project "Sustainable Energy Education Districts for Informal Settlements" (SEED) met for their virtual Kick-off meeting. The teams from the Institute of Geography at the University of Bayreuth (UBT), the Technical University of Kenya (TU-K), the Eduardo Mondlane University (UEM) in Mozambique and the industrial partner Phaesun GmbH participated. After the mutual introduction round, the partners discussed how they will tackle the planned work packages. The possible effects of the worldwide Corona pandemic were also considered. During the next meeting, the partners will take a closer look at informal settlements and decide which are to be specifically investigated within the framework of the project in the partner countries Mozambique and Kenya. The joint project is funded by the "German Federal Ministry of Education and Research (BMBF)" and will run until the end of March 2024.
