Intra-ACP Academic mobility Project: Inter-University Co-operation to Train Crop Scientists for Enhancing Agriculture in Africa (CSAA)

What is the programme about? The ACP-EU under its academic mobility programme, Mwalimu Nyerere, has provided funding to support training of graduate students in African universities. In this mobility programme twelve African partner institutions will collaborate in the training of professionals to enhance agricultural productivity and assure food security for sub-Saharan Africa.  43 Masters and 20 PhD will be trained in the thematic areas of Plant Production and Protection, Environment and Adaptation to Climate Change, Management of Protected Areas and Natural Grasslands, Dryland Management for Agriculture, Agro-forestry and Environment, Research Methods and Approaches in Agriculture and Women and Gender in Agriculture. In addition 10 administrative staff will participate in a capacity building program mainly in areas of financial and international student management among others.  Mobility partners will either act as sending and/or hosting institutions.  The project will provide fellowships for full degree programs (PhDs and MSc) as well as short term mobility for students and staff and will run from 2014 until 2018.

The project is expected to contribute to a) access to quality education and training b) resource rationalization c) regional networking and peer support  d) quality assurance and student mobility e) hasten training of mid-carrier level scientists f) providing new cadre of scientists and provide mobility of staff and students.

The Call for applications will open on 05th February 2014 and will close on 25th March 2014.   All applications sent to the host institution and co-ordinating will be submitted online.
