Private sector development and research partnership systems are central in the development of any economy. As a result, the need for effective collaboration between the corporate world and  academia in exchange of  knowledge for pursuing strides that seek to develop sustainable growth in both the industrial and academic settings has become more essential.

The University of Cape Coast taking cognizance of this and in her quest to promote valuable debates on most fascinating subjects that are of critical importance to policy development and social growth of our country has through the Institutional Advancement Office, designed the UCC Advancement Lecture Series.
