A co-operation between NRF and Centre of Excellence for Nutrition (CEN), North-West University (NWU) officially began in January 2014.  This phase included the establishment and strengthening of nutrition research capacity in Africa.

For the second phase of this collaboration, CEN will continue to support the staff of the University of Ghana (UG) to equip them to in turn be able to provide the same support to surrounding countries, whilst CEN focuses on countries surrounding South-Africa. In other words having two Nutrition Research Hubs in Africa.

We envision that CEN and UG will share their expertise and resources with each other and together present courses and provide materials that can be used to equip and empower post-graduate students and nutrition professionals. The main aim of this collaboration is to establish and strengthen nutrition research capacity in Africa.
