From June 2016 to January 2017, I was a Research Fellow in the area of Education in sub-Saharan Africa at the Robert Bosch Academy Berlin. For my research project on competence-based and student-centred educational reforms and teacher training, I conducted research visits to Cameroon and the Democratic Republic of Congo. As a conclusion to the project, I co-organised an international symposium with Akiiki Babyesiza on the topic of learner-centred education, innovation and research in schools and universities in sub-Saharan Africa.
