The CoLA project is an initiative by UNU-MERIT. The needs assessment for the project was funded by SWOL (Maastricht University). The pilot phase, which took place in autumn 2015 and spring 2016, was funded by the World Universities Network, in which we partner with the Universities of Cape Town, Ghana, and Alberta to deliver content and build the CoLA network. CoLA aims to expand the partner network, specifically with universities, faculties and professors in Sub-Saharan Africa working within the research themes of UNU-MERIT.
