Funding

Pump-prime funding

UK-based BBSRC-eligible Network members will be able to apply for pump-prime funding with costs allowed for projects in Africa. Preference will be given to joint applications with African partners. Early career scientists are specifically encouraged to apply. There will be two pump-prime funding calls. Detailed guidance and application forms will be available shortly.

Training funding

Funding will be made available for Network members to attend Network meetings and workshops. Funding will also be made available for Network members to visit another Network member’s institution to learn a specific scientific technique and gain insight into grant and paper writing. Further information will be provided shortly.
