African Trans-Regional Cooperation through Academic mobility (ACADEMY) is part of the 
Intra-Africa Academic Mobility Scheme that promotes the exchange among higher institutions in various African nations to aid in concretizing and infusing knowledge and culture exchange through staff and students’ mobility all over Africa. It seeks to address pertinent issues such as job shortage, environmental sustainability, gender equality, poverty, and improved quality of higher education. 
The ACADEMY project is designed to provide resources and opportunities for student and staff mobility from four regions of Africa, offering support for Masters, Doctoral and short research, teaching and administrative visits between the consortium partners.
