Promoting International Collaboration (PIC)
From the beginning of 2012 PIC have been conducting a market research in Africa on the training topics of supporting entrepreneurship as shown in the brochure.
Since January 2012 we have conducted 4 different training programmes in Eastern and Southern Africa to monitor and evaluate the response to the marketing campaigns and programmes conducted. The response has been overwhelming covering all sectors: Agricultural, Business, Government, Telecommunications, NGO's, Universities and Colleges. However, it is not PIC's intention to compete with local institutes in Africa with these programmes, but to support and commend them with our experiences and knowledge. For this reason PIC offers African institutes services in which to promote programmes as their own and achieve institutional branding for such an innovative and modern approach to business management.
It is only now that PIC is offering this service and these programmes to African institutes. Our main approach in working with institutes in Africa is through offering our services and to convey our experience in such a way as to making opportunities for our partners. We provide a service, in which we advise our partners to sell this service to their students, academic audience and community in the form of workshops, short programmes, seminars and conferences.
This approach is intended to promote the institute and to produce financial income for the hosting institute through paying participants to these venues. Inevitably, generating a profit for the institute and covering our expenses. Obviously, the more the participants the better, but we strongly advise our partners to work at no less than a 20% profit margin. Meaning at least 15 – 25 paying participants for a 5 day programme, depending on the attendance fee. This is our main approach to collaboration, insuring a win-win situation for all stakeholders, including the participants in the programmes.

The German Federal Ministry for Education and Research has issued a call to submit research proposals on Biofuel Production and Aquaculture in Developing Countries especially in Eastern Africa. I have been contacted by a German University asking for contacts with potential partners in Kenya, Tanzania, Malawi and Mozambique
Of interest are Universities and Research Centers with some experience in Aquaculture Research and/or Biofuel production based on sugarcane cultivation. The University would offer cooperation in joined research projects and an exchange of students / graduates.
Furthermore the University is looking for privately owned (SME) companies producing bio-ethanol and which would allow the University to operate a pilot plant for further processing of the resulting vinasse (process residues).
In case you have any ideas please let me know!
