Applications will be invited in three priority areas:</p> <p> ·         Water &amp; Sanitation<br /> ·          Renewable Energy<br /> ·         Soil-related Research</p> <p> The main purpose of this new programme is to assist in strengthening the collaborations between scientists based in sub-Saharan Africa.</p> <p> The level of support for Programme Grants: The awards will support research consortia of one UK lab and three African labs with up to just over £1.2million over five years, including 10% overheads. The first round of applications will be opened in late 2013, the second in late 2014. A total of 10 awards can be made over the two calls for applications.</p> <p> The main challenge now is to ensure that the information is getting to researchers at relevant institutions across sub-Saharan Africa </p> </div> <span class="field field--name-uid field--type-entity-reference field--label-hidden"><span lang="" about="/user/3" typeof="schema:Person" property="schema:name" datatype="">sbritwum</span></span> <span class="field field--name-created field--type-created field--label-hidden">Thu, 12/11/2014 - 10:17</span> <div class="clearfix text-formatted field field--name-field-resources field--type-text-long field--label-above"> <div class="field__label">Associated resources</div> <div class="field__item"><p> <span><a href=""></a></span></p> </div> </div> <div class="clearfix text-formatted field field--name-field-contactinfo field--type-text-long field--label-above"> <div class="field__label">Contact info</div> <div class="field__item"><p> Dr Hans Hagen<br /> Senior Manager - Grants</p> <p> The Royal Society<br /> 6-9 Carlton House Terrace<br /> London SW1Y 5AG<br /> <a href=""></a></p> <p> If you have got any further questions about this DFID funded programme, please feel free to contact us using the following e-mail address: <a href=""></a>. </p> </div> </div> <div class="field field--name-upload field--type-file field--label-hidden field__items"> <div class="field__item"><table data-striping="1"> <thead> <tr> <th>Attachment</th> <th>Size</th> </tr> </thead> <tbody> <tr class="odd"> <td> <span class="file file--mime-application-pdf file--application-pdf"> <a href="" type="application/pdf; length=58869">Programme Grant flyer - Fren.pdf</a></span> </td> <td>57.49 KB</td> </tr> <tr class="even"> <td> <span class="file file--mime-application-pdf file--application-pdf"> <a href="" type="application/pdf; length=1013955">Programme Grants flyer - Eng.pdf</a></span> </td> <td>990.19 KB</td> </tr> </tbody> </table> </div> </div> <div class="field field--name-field-nsource field--type-string-long field--label-above"> <div class="field__label">News source</div> <div class="field__item">Dr Hans Hagen, Senior Manager - Grants</div> </div> <a href="/taxonomy/term/9" hreflang="en">Other Information</a> <a href="/taxonomy/term/704" hreflang="en">water and sanitation</a> / <a href="/taxonomy/term/706" hreflang="en">soil-related research</a> / <a href="/taxonomy/term/705" hreflang="en">renewable energy</a> Thu, 11 Dec 2014 10:17:19 +0000 sbritwum 577 at
