6. The African Academy of Sciences (AAS) will be hosting a Proposal Development Course in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia, July 13-16, 2015.  

This is in partnership with the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation Grand Challenges team, Wellcome Trust,  UK Department for International Development (DFID), and the Ethiopian Academy of Sciences.

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. Few end up attracting funding, not because they are lacking in scientific relevance but because they fail to meet required standards set by the granting organizations in terms of rationale, approach, resources requested, or they simply fail to convince the reviewers. Thus the major aim of this workshop is to impart knowledge on key principles of writing grant winning proposals.

Please click here for General Information about the workshop and and the Application Form.

 Sponsorship may be available once an application have been selected, but is highly competitive.

 The AAS is planning to organize a second proposal development workshop in 2015, venue as yet unknown.

 Deadline for Submission of Completed Application Forms for the Ethiopian workshop: 20 April 2015, 5pm

 Completed Application Forms should be sent to:

African Academy of Sciences, Attention Ms. Olivia Osula, workshop@aasciences.org; Tel: +254 725 290 145.
