Title: Accelerating Educational Excellence and Public Health Provision in Africa  


Global Knowledge Exchange Network (GKEN) was established in 2011 with the aim of facilitating a sustainable exchange of knowledge for African and friends of Africa researchers, academics, practitioners and students coming from different disciplinary backgrounds in order to exchange and share their knowledge and experiences and form active and productive networks.
GKEN is now legally registered in the UK as a non-for-profit organisation.
Simply put our mission is to connect people with information, information with knowledge and knowledge with information.
In addition to organizing multi-disciplinary conferences series, GKEN also has a number of plans to translate its objectives into reality, these are:
Since launching in 2011 GKEN has organised 6 International Multidisciplinary Conferences in the UK and Ethiopia.
The Ethiopian Doctoral and Masters Academy (EDMA) on the other hand was started by GKEN as part of our wider Global Knowledge Exchange Network (GKEN) programme which is an ongoing initiative project.
What does E.D.M.A do?
Through our EDMA work we attempt to address some of the challenges faced by Ethiopian’s in Higher Education. EDMA brings together Ethiopians and friends of Ethiopia who are academics, researchers and practitioners from many countries and various fields with a clear intention to help increase research capacity, knowledge production and ultimately to prepare future generations of Ethiopian scholars by supporting Doctoral and Master level candidates across Ethiopia coming from various academic disciplines.
To enable us to do this we have taken the first step to facilitate the knowledge exchange and skills-transfer towards building the research, training and strengthening the research capacity of Ethiopian academic institutions.
