Togo: Government gets an Expresso Book Machine for the Universities of Kara and Lomé

(Togo First) - The University of Lomé and the University of Kara have been equipped with an Expresso Book Machine (EBM) - It is a print on demand machine that can print, collate, cover and bind an 800-page book in no more than 12 minutes. The machine was commissioned last Tuesday by the ministers of technological innovation and higher education.

“This equipment was commissioned as part of the government’s efforts to reinforce our educational and university system, and to ensure that the Togolese youth is better equipped to face challenges brought by the digital revolution and meet international standards,” declared Cina Lawson, the minister in charge of the digital sector.   

Produced in the US, the EBM delivered to the two campuses are for the sole use of students and lecturers. With it, these groups can buy any of the seven million books available on the EBM platform, for a third of its original price. 

Through this acquisition, Togo becomes the third country in Africa and the first in West Africa, to have an EBM. The other two are South Africa and Egypt.
