The “African-German Scientific Exchange” enters its third round – this time in the field of neurosciences and invites researchers from all African countries and Germany to initiate international scientific collaboration. The focus on the neurosciences includes basic, applied and clinical topics.
Responding to the challenges of international networking posed by the pandemic, this initiative has so far brought together some 190 researchers in 46 teams from 24 Sub-Saharan African countries and Germany in the fields of Public Health (2021) and Agriculture (2022) and will now be continued beyond the pandemic context.
The “African-German Scientific Exchanges” are designed as integrated two-staged initiatives:
- Researchers are invited to submit scientific posters, network on the basis of a posterbook and identify joint interests
- Research teams are then called to submit proposals for the “Initiation of International Collaboration” at the DFG, a one-year funding programme which entails funds for guest visits, trips abroad and exploratory workshops.
The initiative will be enriched by an integrated “Forum: Connect and Exchange” for the funded research teams to expand African-German networks and give opportunity for mutual learning.
