This initiative started as a partnership between the African Institute for Mathematical Sciences (AIMS) and the European School of Management and Technology (ESMT) in Berlin, and with support funding from the German Deutscher Akademischer Austauschdienst, DAAD (German Academic Exchange Service).
It was launched in 2017 and it is now in its sixth year in running. The program team partnered with Academics Without Borders (AWB) based in Canada in 2020 to scale the program to a new university outside the AIMS Centers.
