New Council to boost collaborative intelligence

A new Academic Council is expected to further boost idea-sharing and skills transfer among Honoris member institutions. Through an exciting range of programmes, including international exchanges and collaborative projects, Honoris faculty and students will benefit from the sharing of academic practices, real-world expertise, and multi-cultural immersion. The Academic Council will also focus on developing employability centres, innovation LABS and cutting-edge learning environments to ensure Honoris students are strongly competitive in the 21st Century labour markets.

Leveraging knowledge, expertise, and best practices across the continent, the Solar TIGMI project was born out of a collaborative partnership between Honoris institutions in Morocco and in Tunisia

Collaborative intelligence in practice

One of our Honoris engineering experts gives insight into how collaborative intelligence can work to great success in designing solutions to real-world problems.

Dr Mohamed Tabaa, Teacher and Director of the LPRI Laboratory at EMSI in Morocco, explains how multinational, multidisciplinary problem-solving is at the heart of an innovative project to design a solar-powered house for the African context. Called Solar TIGMI, the house is an intelligent, 21st century building that is inspired by and respects age-old African design traditions.
