Thirty-two participants from thirteen Countries in Africa and Europe have been given the opportunity to participate in the 4 days full funded workshop.

The objective of the workshop is to assist participants to focus on advanced and new scientific directions in the area of Stochastic Optimal Control. SOCA is a platform for initiating collaborative research among researchers at universities in Ghana, Africa and beyond.

The workshop brings together renowned international and national scientific researchers, young researchers and graduate students working on Stochastic Optimal Control and their Applications.

The SOCA workshop is sponsored by the German Ministry of Education and Research; Alexander von Humboldt Foundation and AIMS Ghana.

About Alexander von Humboldt Foundation

The Alexander von Humboldt Foundation promotes academic cooperation between excellent scientists and scholars from abroad and from Germany.

  • Our research fellowships and research awards allow you to come to Germany to work on a research project you have chosen yourself together with a host and collaborative partner.

  • If you are a scientist or scholar from Germany you can profit from our support and carry out a research project abroad as a guest of one of more than 28,000 Humboldt Foundation alumni worldwide – the Humboldtians.

  • As an intermediary organisation for German foreign cultural and educational policy we promote international cultural dialogue and academic exchange.

The Alexander von Humboldt Foundation is unique in that it not only provides individual sponsorship for outstandingly qualified researchers but also integrates them in a world-spanning network of excellence during their entire lifetime. This “Humboldt Family” connects the world’s academic elite with Germany.
