Science Granting Council Initiative

The AAU is collaborating with the African Academy of Sciences to implement the IDRC Kenya funded project to strengthen the capability of Africa’s Granting Councils in research management. The total project budget is US$840,000 and the project duration is 3 years (2020-2023).

The overall goal of the project is to fortify the capability of Science Granting Councils in explicit areas of research management, namely research excellence (particularly the knowledge and use of tools such as Research Quality Plus framework), research ethics, emerging scientific practices (especially open data, open access and citizen science) and development of online grant management systems (including databases of peer reviewers).
