Exceptional networking opportunities available for education organisations at the eLearning Africa conference


In conjunction with the eLearning Africa 2023 conference on 24-26 May, more opportunities have been created for Finnish companies and organisations to network with African education sector actors. eLearning Africa, held in Dakar, Senegal, is the largest international event promoting digital solutions in the education sector, bringing together educational institutions, technology companies and education financiers.

In parallel to eLearning Africa, Finnpartnership, Embassy of Finland in Senegal and Pathfinder Foundation together with Marjaana Sall, Ambassador for Education at the Ministry for Foreign Affairs of Finland, will organise a Finland-Senegal Education Partnership Forum on Tuesday 23 May. At the event, Finnish and Senegalese participants get to discuss the opportunities and challenges related to digitalisation with education authorities, and present their solutions to UNESCO representatives related to the organisation’s ongoing projects and future needs. On the same evening, the Embassy will also invite participants to a reception at Ambassador Anu Saxén’s residence where the Forum’s conversations can be continued.

Finnpartnership will also organise a Story of Finland learning café in conjunction with the eLearning Africa conference. The event will bring together Finnish and other conference participants to find solutions for how to improve learning opportunities in remote areas in Africa, especially through digitalisation. The Finnish participants will have the opportunity to meet other companies, funders and educational institutions, and discuss potential new partnerships.

Several Finnish companies are joining the conference, and registration is still ongoing. If you are interested in the events, Finnpartnership will organise a virtual information session on 4 May at 11.00 for all participants and those interested in the conference.
