More than 30 colleagues from the Democratic Republic of Congo and from the Congo Republic and 1 from the Republic of Angola made the journey to Kinshasa to learn more about the aims, methods and objectives of the KongoKing research project and to participate in the discussions on further collaboration.

At the end of the 3-parts presentation by Prof. K. Bostoen and Prof. P. de Maret, and Dr. B. Clist, the floor was given to the audience, which resulted in several new hypotheses or methodological suggestions which will be included in the project.

Our special thanks go the Centre Wallonie-Bruxelles for their hospitality.
