1 PAN AFRICAN MATERIALS INSTITUTE (PAMI) PAMI will use a systems-based interdisciplinary approach to bring together a Pan African and international team of scientists, engineers, industrialists, policymakers, and development stakeholders to engage in training and research activities in solar energy, health, water purification and affordable housing/infrastructure PAMI was launched on 3 rd November, 2015 Solar Energy • OLEDs • Organic solar cells • Perovskytes 3 Biomaterials Multi-Functional materials Outreach • Nanoparticles/drug delivery • Water purification • To industries • SUS Building infrastructure • Girls and Women • Bio. MEMs/Tissue Engineering • Mineral processing • TVET
1 The PAMI Abuja Declaration!! • We the PAMI partners have decided to use Materials Science and Engineering Education to improve the living standards of the people of West and Central Africa
2 PAMI Baselines Vs Objectives • PAMI had 9 Ph. D students enrolled at commencement • 9 MSc students at commencement • 4 faculty visiting other institutions
Implementation progress No of PAMI scholars graduating as % of target 7 Ph. Ds graduated as PAMI scholars. 21 MScs graduated as PAMI scholars 147 people with 40 contact hours with PAMI during PASMAT 2015 4 industries with working relationship with PAMI out of 9 targeted.
4 Milestones and achievements • MILESTONE 1 Supply and installation of fibre-optics last mile and provision of internet services for AUST. (leading to increment in bandwidth from 1 MB/s to 15 MB/s (Dec 2014/Jan 2015). • MILESTONE 4 Establishment of FRGs at launch of PAMI (3 Nov 2015). • NUC accreditation July, 2014.
5 Education, Research and Outreach • Pan African School of Materials (PASMAT 2015) trained 147 people with 40 contact hours with PAMI in areas of Biomaterials, Energy Materials and Water purification materials. The deans of West African Diplomatic Corps were present
6 Revenue Generation • On-going efforts with DTCA, Af. DB may yield results soon • PASMATII (2015) to be held with the African Materials Research Society Meeting in Ghana 6 th 11 th Dec, 2015.
PAMI VALUE CHAIN PAMI Engine rooms FRG on Biomaterials focuses on cancer and cardiovascular diseases detection and treatment, developing drug delivery strategies FRG on Multi Functional materials focuses on materials for water purification, sustainable building and infrastructure materials, new and advanced materials. FRG Energy FRG Bio FRG Multi F FRG on Energy and the Environment focuses on OLEDs, Organic solar cell fabrication and Perovskytes. These FRGs motivate the teaching and research in PAMI and are by themselves motivated by industry through the Industry Advisory Board and insights gained during outreach activities Teaching/Outreach
Moving PAMI from Good to Great! Contributions of the focused research groups Industries such as AIG, SCC, Total, NHA have established relationships with PAMI. Af. DB, DTCA are in discussions with PAMI FRG Bio – 9 papers Each FRG has published papers in high-impact factor journals corresponding to 2/fresh Ph. D Total is motivating research in the area of Barite processing, AIG in factory management and metallurgy, SCC in multifunctional materials development. Industry – The Core FRG Multi F – 5 papers FRG Energy – 9 Papers
