Delivering on a vision for a common higher education area for East Africa


The Web of Science can support your successful growth trajectory, view this video on the East African Community’s vision and how the Web of Science can help

The East African Community (EAC) is one of the fastest-growing regional economic blocs in the world. It has a vision to deliver a “Common Higher Education Area,” bringing together sovereign states to develop compatible, coherent and harmonized systems of higher education. In the last 10 years, research output and influence have increased significantly in East Africa. For example, Uganda delivers one of the region’s most-cited papers drawing solely on “home-grown” research by authors based within the country.

Embracing the EAC’s vision, the Web of Science can provide the means to increase your research impact whilst providing valuable information to support the management of funding. And ultimately to elevate the position of East African research in the international research community as they strive to establish a research enabling environment.
