The First Official Delegation Sent to Africa by the University of Bonn: Ghana

The University of Bonn maintains an above average number of agreements with univer-sities and research institutions in Ghana. One of these long-term agreements celebrated its 20th jubilee in 2019. Prof. Dr. Achim Hörauf from the Institute for Medical Microbiology, Immu-nology and Parasitology (IMMIP) has worked with the Kumasi Centre for Collaborative Research in Tropical Medicine (KCCR) for twenty years. To mark this occasion, a 18-strong dele-gation led by the Vice Rector for International Affairs, Prof. Dr. Stephan Conermann, traveled to Ghana in December to visit the cities Accra and Kumasi. The delegation visited a number of destinations including the United Nations University’s Institute for Natural Resources in Africa and took part in the signature ceremony of a memorandum of understanding between the German Reference Centre for Ethics in the Life Sciences (DRZE) at the University of Bonn and the Department of Philosophy and Classics of the University of Ghana.
