The University of Nairobi’s visit to DTU Lyngby Campus reflects the ongoing collaboration between the two institutions, which share a commitment to impact-driven science and innovation in strategic internationalisation.

The event was also attended by representatives from the Danish Ministry of Foreign Affairs, Danida, and the Confederation of Danish Industries, Staff, researchers and Students from DTU, and Alumni from the University of Nairobi.
Ambassador Diana Kiambuthi welcomed the alignment of this initiative with Kenya’s strategy for creating green, sustainable, and inclusive growth and further development of the partnership between Kenya and Denmark for innovation, entrepreneurship, research, and sustainable development.
