The DIGITAL INITIATIVE FOR AFRICAN CENTRES OF EXCELLENCE (DIGI-FACE) is a project which aims to improve the digitalisation of the African Centres of Excellence. The Centres of Excellence are educational hubs established within 11 leading sub-Saharan universities. Together with partner universities in Germany they form a network to improve both the quality of education and the output of excellent research.

DIGI-FACE and the African Centres of Excellence are funded by the DAAD and supported by the German foreign ministry. The project is running until December 2022 with the possibility of a two-year renewal afterwards.
