Key areas of collaboration include the establishment of an AI and technological laboratory at ASE Benin, which will serve as a hub for experimentation and research in AI-related fields. This initiative will not only provide students with hands-on experience but also facilitate the integration of AI technologies into various academic disciplines.


Moreover, the partnership entails the involvement of teachers and professionals specializing in AI or related fields, who will contribute their insights and expertise to enrich the learning experience at ASE Benin. Collaboration on projects and research activities will further expand the horizons of students, allowing them to explore interdisciplinary domains and tackle real-world challenges.

One of the notable aspects of the partnership is the emphasis on enhancing the skills of their 2nd year Master’s students, with a focus on facilitating international article publications and theses. This initiative underscores the commitment of both ASE Benin and iSHEERO to nurturing a generation of scholars equipped to thrive in the global academic landscape.

Additionally, ASE Benin students will have the opportunity to participate in training programs organized by the iSHEERO Association, further broadening their exposure to AI technologies and applications. Academic and professional internships will also be facilitated, providing students with valuable hands-on experience in real-world settings.

Collaborative efforts will extend beyond the classroom, with joint organization of seminars, conferences, and training workshops aimed at fostering knowledge exchange and networking opportunities. Furthermore, the exchange of scientific information will facilitate ongoing dialogue and collaboration between ASE and iSHEERO, ensuring the sustainability and relevance of our partnership.

Our partnership with iSHEERO represents a significant milestone in the integration of AI into education.
