Consultancy, Research Proposals Calls And Conferences

Dear All

I wish to draw you attention to a collection of recent adverts in which has something relevant to your schools.

Lets enhance our University in Research Projects and Consultancies. I wish to request you to put an effort. My office and that of the Director Research and Innovation will support you where necessary.

  1. The Alliance for Accelerating Excellence in Science in Africa (AESA) has partnered with Sida to stimulate new approaches, interventions and tools to ensure that Africa progresses rapidly to improve sustainable and equitable access to nutrient dense foods that promote good health. Grants will go to African investigators. Collaborations across the continent are encouraged. This is phase 1 of the call, awarding seed grants for up to 2 years. Deadline December 4, 2020

  2. These two grants are generously funded by the German Federal Ministry of Education and Research (BMBF) and with support of the Alexander von Humboldt Foundation (AvH). The two Mobility Grants for Junior Researchers aim to strengthen the scientific capacity in Africa through active co- operation of AGNES members. It further supports Humboldtians in their efforts towards coaching and mentoring high potential junior researchers, helping them to access international networks of scientific excellence (e.g. AvH). Deadline 5th December 2020.

  3. Primate Conservation, Incorporated (PCI) is a not-for-profit foundation founded to fund field research that supports conservation programs for wild populations of primates. Priority will be given to projects that study, in their natural habitat, the least known and most endangered species. The involvement of citizens from the country in which the primates are found will be a plus. The intent is to provide support for original research that can be used to formulate and to implement conservation plans for the species studied. Deadline 15th December 2020.

  4. Our Conservation Insight Grants are for projects focusing on endangered species for up to two years. We have awarded grants to scientific researchers and conservationists for many years for work that is aimed at the preservation of endangered species around the world. Open all round.

  5. The Conservancy’s NatureNet Science Fellowship operates on the principle that – to address the scope and scale of these environmental challenges – TNC needs to foster a new generation of interdisciplinary conservation science leaders. Now in its sixth year, the NatureNet Science Fellowship awards 2-year fellowships to promising early career scientists. Each fellow is jointly mentored by a Conservancy field practitioner and a senior scholar from a university or accredited research institution on a project with direct application to specific TNC priorities and goals. Deadline 1st January 2021.

  6. Research on primates. The Leakey Foundation exclusively funds research related to human origins. Priority of funding is commonly given to exploratory phases of promising new research projects that meet the stated purpose of the Foundation. Deadline January 10th 2021

  7. Award for transformative agro-ecological research granting organization: bio-vision foundation and the Agro-polis foundation. Deadline January 11th 2021.

  8. The purpose of this notice of funding opportunity is to conduct epidemiologic, clinical, laboratory, and operations research on infectious diseases, non-communicable diseases, and environmental health in Kenya in order to better understand disease burden, risk factors, and effective interventions to influence policy and decrease morbidity and mortality. Through this notice of funding opportunity, the Center for Global Health also seeks to build capacity to improve the quality of research in Kenya. Deadline 15th Feb 2021

  9. Smart Farming Innovations for Small-Scale Producers Request for Proposals (RFP) seeks Smart Farming solutions that leverage digital technology innovations that have the potential to drive positive impact for small scale producer (SSP) entrepreneurs delivered through bundled farmer services and enabled by scalable digital and data platforms.
