Makerere-UiB: a new frame agreement
In late November 2013, the coordinators from Makerere University and UiB met in Bergen to kick-start the process towards a new frame agreement.
In February 2013, Makerere University and the University of Bergen (UiB) celebrated 25 years of collaborations with a day-long celebration in Kampala, home of Makerere. UiB’s then rector, Professor Sigmund Grønmo, headed the delegation from Bergen.
In November 2013, Professor Edward K. Kirumira of Makerere visited Bergen to begin the work towards a new frame agreement between the two universities.
Professor Kirumira is Makerere’s coordinator for the UiB collaboration, a position he has held since 2004. Whilst in Bergen he met with UiB’s Senior Executive Officer Thelma Kraft and Professor Thorkild Tylleskär, who have been coordinators on the UiB side of the collaboration since 2003 and 2005 respectively.
