CALL FOR PRE-PROPOSALS: African Fellows Programme
The Rothamsted International African Fellows Programme aims to provide problem-focused training in Europe for mid-career African scientists.
The aim of the African Fellows Programme (AFP) is to support sustainable agriculture in sub-Saharan Africa by catalysing innovative solutions needed to achieve food security. Projects should aim to develop lasting partnerships and strategic alliances that will help in developing local scientific capacity relevant to sustainable agricultural production. African scientists will carry out research projects in a partner European research institute, or university, for periods normally of 6 to 8 months. Fellowships are awarded on a competitive basis in a two stage assessment process.

The deadline for receipt of pre-proposals under the current call is 11 February 2008.
