On April 2-8 this year. The inaugural meeting of the international AFROTRANS project took place in Cameroon. The participants of the meeting were academic teachers and scientists from European Union countries (Poland, Germany, Austria) and from Africa (Cameroon, Democratic Republic of the Congo). The Gdańsk University of Technology was represented by Wojciech Kustra, Tomasz Mackun and Maciej Sawicki from the Faculty of Civil and Environmental Engineering https://wilis.pg.edu.pl/en

The meeting allowed us to learn about the context of transport in African countries. European partners presented modern teaching methods that will be used in the project. An inherent element of the meeting was mutual cultural understanding, which will allow for reliable communication and cooperation.
