“Korea-Ethiopia S&T Personnel Exchange Program” overlooks 1) Recruitment of S&T faculty members (from Korea and the rest of the world) and 2) Ethiopian Students' Study Abroad Program.

The above two programs were organized by the German Academic Exchange Service (DADD) for the past 10 years but the contract has just expired and the Ethiopian MOE is seeking a new partner in Korea, STEPI as the potential organizer. Currently, the excellent and passionate faculties from Korea who are working in the Ethiopian S&T universities have made great impressions of Korea to the Ethiopian government and the academia. Therefore, the MOE contacted the STEPI to discuss about the possibility in securing faculties for ten Institutes of Technology (IOT) and two Science & Technology Universities.
