n collaboration with the Governments of Burundi, Ethiopia, Kenya, Malawi, Mozambique, Rwanda, Tanzania, Uganda, Zambia and Zimbabwe, the World Bank Group (WBG) and Inter-University Council for East Africa (IUCEA) are jointly launching a Call for Proposals for Africa Centers of Excellence (ACEs) for Eastern and Southern Africa. This is part of the preparation for a proposed investment project expecting to be reviewed by the WBG Board in the spring of 2016 – Eastern and Southern Africa Higher Education Centers of Excellence Project (ACE II). The main objective of this proposed project is to establish and strengthen specialization and collaboration among a network of higher education institutions in the Eastern and Southern Africa region to deliver relevant and quality education and applied research to address key development challenges facing the region. The WBG Board approved a similar project for Western and Central Africa (ACE I) in 2014. Under ACE I, nineteen ACEs were selected from seven participating countries in the region and their implementation is underway.
