a) International Multidisciplinary PhD Studies in Educational Technology and Learning Environments (IMPDET-LE)
The College of Business Education (CBE) Tanzania in collaboration with the University of Eastern Finland (UEF) offers a Doctoral Programme in Information and Communication Technology (ICT) since 2014. Apart from jointly running the PhD Programme, the MoU mandates the two institutions collaborate in conducting Research and Consultancy services. The PhD Programme offering is within the International Multidisciplinary PhD Studies in Educational Technology & Learning Environments (IMPDET-LE) Framework of UEF. The IMPDET-LE - provides doctoral education in the interactions between education and technology in a given cultural context.
b) Translocal forest owners and environmental collaboration: An action learning process of forest governance transformation in Tanzania (MAKUTANO).
MAKUTANO research project aims to develop appropriate and new methodological and theoretical approaches for environmental collaboration and conflict resolution to be used in Tanzania and elsewhere. The action research approach will be used to find out if urban forest owners influence forest governance, and induce local conflicts over resource utilization. The project provides skills on environmental collaboration and conflict resolution to a group of small- and medium-scale forest owners and local community members in the Southern Highlands of Tanzania, and traces how these skills are transformed and used in the future actions of these forest owners and the surrounding communities. The project is funded by the Develop Academy Programme (2019-2022), which is a programme jointly prepared by the Academy of Finland and the Ministry for Foreign Affairs of Finland.
