The “AFRICA-ai-JAPAN” Project is a joint initiative involving JKUAT, PAUSTI and JICA. This project will strengthen the knowledge and skills mainly in the fields of ; Agriculture, Engineering, Science and Biotechnology of both PAUSTI and JKUAT students and staff.

The AFRICA- ai-JAPAN Project is managed through task forces, where an umbrella body referred to as the main task forces coordinates all projects activities. Specialized teams were formed based on research focus which are referred to as  sub-task forces, these teams focus on innovative research activities in the areas of Agriculture, Technology and basic sciences.

The Sub-task force ensures development of strong links between JKUAT students and staff with those of PAUSTI. However, the activities of the sub-task forces are being monitored and evaluated by an M&E Committee.
