About this Study

The Tanzania Development Vision 2025 envisages a society equipped with the knowledge to solve problems and become competitive at a regional and global level. To attain this goal, this vision calls for enhanced science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) education.

The lack of sufficient resources is a major obstacle for STEM education in Tanzania, and this study examines the role of public private partnerships (PPP) in enhancing STEM education. It will explore how formal and informal PPP arrangements in the education sector in Arusha can be scaled up to promote STEM education in Tanzania. By looking at the roles of intellectual property, creative commons, and open access publishing in collaborative ventures, this study will help to determine what can the government do to facilitate and promote existing and emerging PPPs.
