CAAST-Net Plus to Host Workshop on Climate Change Research Capacity in Uganda
CAAST-Net Plus partners, Uganda’s National Council for Science and Technology and the UNEP DTU Partnership, are currently organising a workshop on capacities for applied research into human health and climate change. Its objectives are to identify research priorities and challenges in applied research in climate change and human health, explore avenues for accessing appropriate sources of funds, and to discuss and refine research proposals within the field of climate change for human health.
“We aim to gather a limited number of early-career researchers from the East African Community (EAC), to enable thorough and substantial group work on individual research proposals,” says an early advertisement. “The participants should, moreover, be able to bring specific research proposals or ideas to work on at the workshop, and these should be concerned with the implications of climate change for human health.”
The workshop is open to qualified academic researchers with a maximum of 5 years post-doc experience, or post-graduate researchers with a completed Master’s degree who have practical experience in the area of human health and climate change.
Researchers are encouraged to express their interest by 17 February 2017 by completing the template indicated on the advert, along with a short motivation letter and CV which they should email to Thomas Larsen at thelar[at]dtu.dk. Transport, accommodation and food will be covered by the event organisers.
