Sena institute of Technology is a private non-profit research center in Ghana. The institute is a startup with a mission of promoting research capacity in Ghana and in other African countries. Located at the border between Ghana’s Capital, Accra and Togo’s Capital, Lome, enabling bilingual team interactions. The official language of Ghana is English and that of Togo is French. The Institute is located about 3 hours’ drive from the Ghana capital and an hour from Togo’s capital. A primary aim is to bridge the various research and cultural gaps between both countries.
