Proposal development: Workshop for early and mid-career African scientists

The African Academy of Sciences (AAS) is planning to organize two proposal development workshop in 2015. The first will be held in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia, 13–16 July 2015, in collaboration with the Ethiopian Academy of Sciences (EAS). Interested scientists need to apply by 20 April 2015, 17:00 hours East Africa Time.

One notable limitation to research output in Africa is the low quality of proposals submitted by early and mid-career scientists from African research centres and universities.

The series of workshops aims at training participating African scientists on proposal development techniques, to boost their capacity in competing for research grants and ultimately raise research quality and output in Africa.

For details, please download the document linked below. Also linked below is the application form for the first workshop. Deadline for receipt of applications is 20 April 2015, 17:00 hours East Africa Time.
