Support for international research collaboration is a major priority for the Royal Society.
As part of its international engagement, the Society has been involved in capacity-building in sub-Saharan Africa since 1996.
The scheme, funded by the Leverhulme Trust, aims to help develop and maintain excellence in science in both countries:
The Leverhulme - Royal Society Africa Awards provide funding for UK-Ghana or UK-Tanzania research collaborations, aimed at strengthening the research and training capacity of the African institution.
Awards will offer a maximum of £50,000 per annum for a 3 year project to cover research expenses and costs for mobility.
Up to £10,000 per year of the award may be used to purchase or maintain equipment.
The total maximum amount of award is £150,000.
Applicants are encouraged to apply in five priority areas:
Agriculture (including animal health)
Water and sanitation
Basic human health research (including medicinal chemistry)
Biodiversity (including medicinal plants and green chemistry)
Energy (including renewables)
The applications will be assessed on the basis of their scientific merit, the potential for long-term research collaboration and the level of training opportunities.
