Future Earth is organizing a virtual training and networking workshop to make the recently launched Belmont Forum Collaborative Research Action funding opportunity on Pathways to Sustainability more accessible for early career researchers from Africa.
The workshop will take place online on 9 and 10 September 2020.
The event is organized by Future Earth in collaboration with the Future Earth Office for Southern Africa (FEROSA), the Program for Early-stage Grants Advancing Sustainability Science (PEGASuS), the National Research Foundation of South Africa (NRF), the African Future Earth Committee (AFEC), and the Institut de Recherche pour le Développement (IRD).
This event will mobilize capacities by 1) improving the participants’ understanding of the functioning of Belmont Forum Collaborative Research Action opportunities, 2) offering training in storytelling and strategic communication for impactful research, and 3) creating networking opportunities among early career researchers and senior scientists. This is an opportunity for earlycareer researchers from Africa to present and promote their research in order to create collaborations with senior researchers, potentially leading to building a joint consortium. A part of the sessions will be rolled out in French and English to accommodate both anglophone and francophone participants.
Applications deadline: 17 August
