From 3th to 5th May 2016 Cape Town hosted the “Going Global 2016” Conference, an open forum that brought together world education leaders in order to connect ideas and promote answers about the trend issues on global higher and further education.

HEIRRI was present at the “Going Global 2016” during the poster session by the hand of Nadja Gmelch, head of projects at ACUP/GUNi, in charge of the communication and internationalisation plans of the project.

Besides the poster session, one of the goals of participating at the conference was to learn about RRI in Africa. Being present at the first Going Global Conference ever to take place in Africa helped the project to get some deeper insights on RRI in Africa, mainly in the Anglophone countries of the continent. Get to know more about the conversations with HEI representatives from the African continent here.

If you know any relevant course, educational programme, course material or other resources related to RRI in teaching and learning contexts in Africa, we would love to hear from you! Let us know through our social media channels: Twitter account (, Facebook page (, or LinkedIn group (
