ACEIoT showcases its innovative projects during the PASET meeting
The African Centre of Excellence in Internet of Things has showcased its innovative project during PASET’s Governing Council Meeting held in Kigali on 2 Feb 2023.
Partnership for skills in Applied Sciences, Engineering and Technology (PASET) which is established by the governments of Rwanda, Ethiopia, and Senegal in 2013 aims to support African countries to build a skilled labour force by focusing on the continuum of skills from foundational skills to upper, secondary, technical, vocational training as well as higher education, scientific research and innovation.
The Centre exhibited their innovative projects funded by PASET which are meant to advance technology to address different societal challenges. There are ‘Smart bees Hiving Technology’, ‘Real time Assessment of the indoor air pollution in Sub-Saharan households (Case study: Rwanda rural and urban areas’, ‘Infectious Diseases Outbreak Prediction using Geolocation Data with Machine Learning’, ‘Agriculture Data from Acoustic Monitoring’, ‘Electromagnetic Compatibility Monitoring and Prediction Models for Biomedical Devices’, ‘Tools for Evaluating African Lakes’,
In her remarks, Minister of Education Dr Uwamariya Valentine noted that Africa can’t achieve its desired development without skilled workforce in science and technology.
African countries still have a few graduates on the level of doctorate, she said, adding that it’s one of the reasons why PASET was established and now it has 11 member states namely Ethiopia, Rwanda and Senegal as founding members while other 8 members Benin, Cote d’Ivoire, Burkina Faso, Ghana, Kenya, Nigeria, Mozambique, and Tanzania joined later.
