Details of Cambridge-Africa ALBORADA.

Deadline: September 6, 2020

Call for applications are now open for theĀ Cambridge-Africa ALBORADA Research Fund 2020/2021.

The Fund supports pairs of researchers (post-doctoral level and above) from the University of Cambridge or an affiliated institution and sub-Saharan African institutions, across all disciplines, to initiate and/or strengthen research collaborations.

To date, more than 200 awards have been made, to enable Cambridge researchers to engage with African colleagues from 28 African countries. Some awardees have been able to use the preliminary results from their seed fund / research collaboration to apply for and win significant funding (e.g. Royal Society/Leverhulme Awards, Global Challenges Research Fund, etc.).

The Cambridge-Africa ALBORADA Research Fund was established in 2012, with generous support from The ALBORADA Trust.

Funding

The Cambridge-Africa ALBORADA Research Fund competitively awards grants of between Ā£1,000 and Ā£20,000, for:

  • Research costs (such as reagents, fieldwork and equipment)
  • Research-related travel between Cambridge and Africa
  • Conducting research training activities in Africa (e.g. setting up courses/workshops).

Eligibility

  • Applicants from Cambridge apply jointly with applicants from universities/ institutes in sub- Saharan Africa and co-create the projects.
  • Priority will be given to applications that build new partnerships (or expand existing ones) with the potential for long term collaboration.
  • Projects should also ideally strengthen the research capacity of the African researcher and/or the African research institution/university.
  • Both applicants must be at post-doctoral level or above, and by completing an application it is understood that they are both doing so with support from their Head of Department or equivalent.
  • Both applicants should have a formal link to a research group/department/faculty in their home institution.
  • The awards are not intended to support postgraduate students, however, limited support for students (e.g. as part of a research project or training visit) will be considered when there is a clear demonstration that this will enhance the relationship between the Cambridge and African Principal Investigators (PIs).
