MS18: Mathematics and Working Life in African Context. Status and Visions

There is a need and serious interest in several mathematics departments in African universities to develop outreach to the external world, industry, public institutions and applied sciences. African colleagues can benefit a lot from connections to colleagues in Europe and there is a lot of potential in cooperation with ECMI. We report about recent developments and discuss the challenges and prospects.
