The German National Academy of Sciences Leopoldina is providing important information about funding possibilities for German and African scientists with the aim of encouraging the international scientific exchange.
The German National Academy of Sciences Leopoldina has been actively cooperating with a number of African partners on a variety of projects with the aim of furthering and strengthening the German-African scientific exchange. Joint projects include, for example, bilateral symposia and the Leopoldina’s three-year cooperation project with the Network of African Science Academies (NASAC), funded by the German Ministry of Education and Research.
Moreover, the Leopoldina has compiled a list of information, which may serve as a point of reference to anyone interested in funding possibilities available for German-African collaboration projects. This collection is also designed to offer African scientists a brief and concise overview regarding Africa-related funding possibilities available in Germany and the European Union (EU).
