The Workshop seeks to assist young scholars who are grappling with complex cooperatives studies in Africa as they search for sustainable models for cooperatives development. The workshop is calling on researchers and young scholars to submit abstracts for presentations focusing on the themes listed below:

• Gender inclusiveness in cooperatives
• Innovation and governance of cooperatives
• Cooperatives organizational structures
• Research methods in cooperatives
• collective entrepreneurship
Those interested should submit abstracts or motivation letters. Abstracts should not exceed 300 words including 5 keywords.

However, there is travel and accommodation weaver for students who fail to get funding from their institutions.
