Arizona State University (ASU) and Kwame Nkrumah University of Science and Technology (KNUST) are building the Center for Applied Research and Innovation in Supply Chain–Africa (CARISCA). This five-year, $15M project is supported through the United States Agency for International Development’s (USAID) Bureau for Development, Democracy, Innovation/Innovation, Technology Research Hub as part of the Building Research and Innovation for Development: Generating Evidence and Training program (BRIDGE-Train). The funded project runs from June 2020 to June 2025.

CARISCA’s key objective is to support higher education institutions in building the capacity necessary to provide best-in-class degree programs and training, facilitate research translation and utilization, engage stakeholders in best practices and policy changes that strengthen supply chains, and increase inclusion and impact for women in supply chain management.
CARISCA works in four focus areas: research, stakeholder engagement, curriculum, and access and inclusion.
Together, these activities enable KNUST to increase research capacity, strengthen and update supply chain curricula, and provide supply chain management expertise to Ghana and Africa.
These activities also focus on developing partnerships and revenue-generating activities to sustain ongoing growth and influence and encourage and promote the inclusion of women in supply chain education, research and practice.
