Listening, trust and equity are at the heart of mutually beneficial partnerships. Through our participation in networks, together with our partners, we strive to put these values into action.

In this issue of Connect, we shine the spotlight on our projects and partnerships in Africa. Professor Paul Garside, Dean for Global Engagement for this region introduces our work and invites discussion on future collaboration, from research to education partnerships.

Congratulations to Glasgow College in Chengdu, where our joint venture with UESTC has been awarded Educational Partnership of the Year at the China-Scotland Business Awards.

As we all continue to live through these unprecedented times, I once again send you my very best wishes.
