Beninise delegation visits the UCP

18.12.2018 - 18.12.2018

During the week of 18th December 2018, the university of Cergy-Pontoise welcomed a delegation of Beninise teacher-researchers within the framework of the exixting agreement between the UCP and the University of Abomey-Calavi which was signed in spring 2018.

The visit was full of exchanges and projects: preparation and organisation of the launching of the conference entitled “culture, heritage and development” to be held in Benin in 2020, the  Beninise teacher-researchers’ role in the DCVP Master course, meetings about research collaboration and a visit of the Techedulab platform with Alain Jaillet, executive vice-president for international development (Africa and Francophonie).


This partnership is very active between researchers from the MRTE laboratory and teachers from the “Institut National des Métiers d'Art, d'Archéologie, et de la Culture” of the UAC. Several missions in Benin have been co-funded by the local agglomeration authorities of Cergy-Pontoise (decentralised cooperation) and, largely, by the French Embassy in Cotonou for the last two years. In spring 2018, the president of the UAC as well as the international relations representatives, the UAC partnership members and the INMAAC team had also received a visit from Elizabeth Auclair and Anne Hertzog. The teams are currently working together on projects such as the identification and appreciation of heritage in Benin and in Porto Novo.
