7th U6+ International Conference, 2019

Six African Universities initially formed the U6 Consortium (now U6+) as a collaborative platform. Presently, the number has increased to eight comprising Cape Peninsula University of Technology, South Africa; University of Eldoret, Kenya; Kwara State University, Malete, Nigeria; The University of The Gambia, The Gambia; University of Cape Coast, Cape Coast, Ghana; University of Ilorin, Ilorin, Nigeria, Nigeria, University of Calabar, Nigeria and Michael and Cecilia Ibru University, Nigeria. The Consortium was established with the aim of fostering academic linkages and educational collaboration among these Universities. U6+ was officially launched on March 10, 2012 at the University of Ilorin, Ilorin, Nigeria.

As part of the initial agreement, all the collaborating Universities agree to cooperate on many areas including facilitating and coordinating joint researches, human capacity and curriculum developments. Others include organising seminars, academic interactive sessions, and other professional development programmes. Finally, they are also involved in organising joint annual international conferences and workshops. Institutions hosting these activities and programmes are usually selected on a rotational basis. University of Calabar, Calabar, Nigeria is the 2019 host of the U6+ Conference.
