Research Capacity Strengthening in Africa grants

There is an urgent need to strengthen local research capacity in Africa, to tackle compelling questions about health and disease vital to enhancing people's health, lives and livelihoods.

In order to enhance institutional capacity to undertake research, the Wellcome Trust will provide funding to support the creation of consortia and networks; both between higher education institutes (HEIs) and research institutes located within Africa, and between these institutions and UK HEIs.

Institutions outside the UK and Africa may also be members of consortia.

The African partners are expected to include a mix of institutions with well-established research activities, and promising institutions that are either developing or renewing their research potential.

The Wellcome Trust has a particular focus on health research, including biomedical research and public health.

Other scientific research areas may also be considered, where complementary to health research.
