Eugenie Souris and Uvicka Bristol from BERI hosted a conference at the University of Mauritius: Faculty of Ocean Studies. The conference was to present the Indian Ocean Rim Association survey results to researchers in Mauritius. The survey was carried out in Seychelles this year. The purpose of the work is to develop a research network in the Western Indian Ocean region from which environmental organisations, researchers and university students alike can gain access to regional research data which will benefit the development of the blue economy, enrich knowledge and ensure a sustainable future for our islands.
The new Enterprise Centre was officially launched on Friday at TGMI.The centre, which is in line with UniSey’s strategic plan 2014-2016, aims to strengthen the culture of entrepreneurship in the country, and to create a new generation of entrepreneurs with the ability to really make things happen.
Students who have completed their studies at UniSey had the opportunity to meet with different organisations on Thursday. Presentations were given by the Ministry of Employment, DPA, ANHRD, Hilton Hotel and Central Bank. Following the formal part of the seminar, where students were given information to prepare them for the world of work and other future endeavours, the students were able to meet with the representatives and ask further questions.
