Fundación Mujeres por África


Deadline October 30, 2021


Women for Africa Foundation is launching the 7th call for fellowships of the program Science by Women, aimed at selecting 22 senior African women scientists to be integrated in 22 top research Spanish centers in the following areas: health and biomedicine, agriculture and food security, water, energy and climatic change.

Considering the exceptional challenge of the Covid-19 pandemic, some of the fellowships are focused on the research and innovation carried out by African women scientists from the diverse and interdisciplinary approaches.

So far more than 80 fellows have enjoyed six-month research stays which have contributed to enhance their leadership in scientific research and technology transfer.

You can find the presentation as well as the rules and guidelines in the link https://mujeresporafrica.es/7th-edition-science-by-woman/

I encourage you to give to this call the widest dissemination among senior women researchers.

The program’s ultimate goal is to enable African women researchers to play a leading role in the transition of Africa to a knowledge-based and innovation-led economy.

The Women for Africa Foundation is a private entity aimed at contributing to the sustainable development of Africa through the drive of its women.
