  • Dissemination of information on the project, related activities, and approved new courses.

Due to the COVID-19 outbreak and the freezing of all activities concerning the organizations of in person events and mobility, including the planned travel of European partners to Tanzania and Uganda in autumn 2020 and considering the uncertain development of the COVID-19 spread and the consequent evolution of the internal lockdown in Tanzania and Uganda (including the activities of universities involved in the project), a restructuring of the Info-Days was necessary. As consequence, short thematic videos were prepared with participation of all partners and under the coordination and supervision of A Sud on the key themes of DALILA project.
