Project Implementation

The Project Implementation Unit (PIU) is the coordination hub of this partnership. It has dedicated staff members who attends to all the day to day running of the programme and acts as a broker of information to all partners. All full partners are members of the Programme Board, which is the highest governing body of our partnership.

The PIU consists of the Project Service Centre. We pride ourselves in being a service- and client-oriented section of the Namibia University of Science and Technology. Our goal is to be a renowned grant-management and project support services centre, through offering an excellent, effective, professional and value-adding service to our clientele. One of our main functions is the management of internal, as well as externally sourced funding, both at national and international level, as well as those generated through industry partnerships.  Specific functions towards the STREAM project include:

  • To streamline and facilitate the implementation of project management by making available uniform and appropriate project management methodology, processes, procedures and templates,
  • Grant award administration and management in terms of project scope, time, costs, quality and communication
  • Networking and relationship building throughout the project duration and beyond.

Furthermore, the PIU is also supported by the International Relations Office. The core function of the International Relations Office (IRO) is to drive the transformation of the Namibia University of Science and Technology (NUST) into a recognised University of Science and Technology. The Internationalization Strategy serves as our blueprint for the integration of global perspectives into all core functions of the institution, namely, teaching, research and community service. Specifically, the unit will provide the following services to the Project: 

  • Providing support and information for immigration purposes
  • Airport transfers
  • Accommodation Information
  • Information for Cultural Activities
