In September 2008 the African Union Commission (AUC) launched its African Union Scientific Award Programme. The call for applications for the 2016 award cycle is now open. Prizes are awarded to top African scientists working in Life and Earth Science and Basic Science, Technology and Innovation. The Continental Award is open to all African scientists and is the highest level of the programme. Two winners will each receive USD 100,000 during the Heads of States and Government Summit in January 2017. The Regional Award implemented in partnership with the Regional Economic Communities (REC) aims at promoting the participation of African women in STI. Two winners per region will each receive a prize of USD 20,000. The National Young Scientists Award is implemented by Member States who have signed an agreement with the AUC and its implementation partner, the World Academy of Sciences (TWAS). This award is intended for scientists aged not more than forty years by 31 December. Two winners per country will receive a prize of USD 2,000 each. [Image credit: ghanaschools.org]

10 African Countries Eligible for Grants from Dutch Applied Research Fund

http://l.caast-net-plus.org/j0

Research organisations from Benin, Burundi, Ethiopia, Ghana, Kenya, Mali, Mozambique, Rwanda, South Sudan, and Uganda, working in a partnership with at least one other organisation, are eligible to apply for grants of between €50,000 and €300,000 from the Netherlands Organisation for Scientific Research’s Food and Business Applied Research Fund. Says the NWO website: “Research projects should evolve through co-creation: a concerted effort of practitioners and research and/or higher education organisations. Projects should contribute to improving sustainable and inclusive access to sufficient and healthy food and an inclusive business climate for the most vulnerable people in the Dutch partner countries. Projects must show applicability of the newly developed or adjusted knowledge, insights, technologies, tools, products, services or policies. Since a strong local/regional private sector is important in reaching local/regional food security, research projects that aim at improving local/regional entrepreneurship are included.” Applications close on 5 July 2016 and 6 December 2016. Up to fifteen projects may be granted. [Image credit: NWO]
