WASCAL Director of Research at the Department of Remote Sensing

June 21, 2022

From 18th to 20th of June, the WASCAL Director of Research, Prof. Dr. Kehinde Ogunjobi, and the remote sensing expert at the WASCAL Competence Center (CoC), Dr. Kwame Hackman, paid a visit to the Department of Remote Sensing.

The two days were efficiently used for strategic planning as well as for discussing scientific activities and collaboration between BMBF-funded WASCAL-DE-Coop and WASCAL. In an invited open talk at the University of Würzburg, Ogunjobi presented the WASCAL research plan, its priority research topics, and their impact in West Africa and the 11 WASCAL member countries.

We are grateful for this fruitful visit and are looking forward to following up in further personal exchange.
