Most of the IDECC’s team is composed of academicians, teaching in such public universities as, for instance, the Manchester Metropolitan University, the Rivers State University of Science and Technology, the University of Uyo, the University of Ouagadougou, the University of Abidjan Cocody, the Makerere University, the Vietnam National University of Forestry, etc.

Importantly, since 2017, IDECC’s President and Vice-president have been professors of Biostatistics, Population Ecology and Computer Science (for master’s and PhD’s students) at the Faculty of Sciences of the University of Lomé, Togo (vice-chancellor Prof. G. Ketoh, head of the master’s course Prof. G.H. Segniagbeto). The expertise of IDECC’s team is therefore significantly helping the enhancement of the research and scientific skills of African students, and the partnership between our Institute and the University of Lomé has been much valued for the production of many projects and scientific field research of mutual benefit.
