Resilient Urban Communities Conference

This event is a series of two. The first part brings together Early Career Researchers (ECR) who generally face great difficulty with research work and publications with often inadequate understanding of the publishing models including (and not limited to) open access journals. The ECR Seminar will empower ECRs to build ideas around creating research teams, establish the collaborations and networks necessary for professional growth, establish themselves as independent researchers leading unique and innovative scientific programmes within diverse domains.

The second part will be a one-day conference that will focus on social enterprises (SEs) and non-profit organizations (NPOs) as subsidiary social service providers and vehicles for participation and integration in African mega cities that contribute to the resilience of urban communities. Organizations of the civil society or development space, such as social enterprises (SEs) and non-profit organizations (NPOs) are important players in the labour market of African economies. The presentations for the Conference shall majorly be from the research being undertaken though the organizers will allow exceptional research contributions closely related to the research domain, including invited speakers. The PhDs and ECRs with close related researches shall be invited to make presentations after reviewing their extended individual abstracts. The full research papers of the accepted presentations by the PhDs and ECRs, that meet individual journal requirements shall be forwarded for publication in different journals that RUC Consortium team subscribe within the research domain.
