Science and Language Mobility Scheme Africa

Purpose, Objectives and Scope of the Fund

About the Science and Language Mobility Scheme in Africa

The Science and Language Mobility Scheme Africa is a five-year programme that funds researchers from Anglo and Francophone Africa to undertake scientific research in language regions other than their own.  The programme seeks to build language skills and cultural capabilities of researchers as they undertake their projects, a strategy towards addressing one of the barriers to intra- Africa scientific collaboration.  It is a collaboration between the African Academy of Sciences, Wellcome and Institut Pasteur providing travel grants for short term visits of up to six months to African researchers. At the AAS, the scheme will be implemented through the Alliance for Accelerating Excellence in Science in Africa (AESA).

Objectives

  • Strengthen scientific collaboration between Anglo and Francophone speaking African researchers
  • Build language skills/capabilities in English and French among African researchers
  • Improve cultural understanding between English and French speaking African researchers.

Scope

Science and Language Mobility Scheme Africa is a closed call.  Applicants will be grantees funded through the AAS and the NEPAD Agency’s AESA platform, such as the Human Hereditary and Health in Africa (H3 Africa), the Developing Excellence in Leadership, Training and Science (DELTAS) Africa, and Institut Pasteur networks.
The scientific scope of applications should focus on biomedical science and public health of relevance to national, regional or global health.

While applications that involve existing collaborations will be considered, applications from new collaborations, young/early-career researchers (postdoctoral researcher not in an established academic post), and a diverse range of applicants, particularly female are strongly encouraged.  

Purpose

The five-year programme seeks to increase intra-Africa research collaboration between English and French-speaking African scientists while breaking language and cultural barriers to allow scientists to learn from each other and better address the health and development challenges facing the continent.
