Go8 collaboration with the University of Papua New Guinea
Between 2009 and 2012 the Group of Eight managed a program of academic collaboration with the University of Papua New Guinea (UPNG) in Port Moresby.
The Go8-UPNG project engaged academics from Australian universities in a voluntary capacity to work with and support their academic counterparts at UPNG. Their travel, accommodation and living expenses were covered by the project (funded by the Go8 and AusAID), allowing the volunteers to work in a collaborative teaching and mentoring role.
The program is currently being reviewed by AusAID and will not operate beyond first semester 2012.
