Empowering the Research Leaders of Tomorrow
Empowering the Research Leaders of Tomorrow
Science for Africa is developing a network of networks in food research: By connecting relevant entities (eg, professional societies, university departments, and government agencies) in food & nutritional health research across sub-Saharan Africa, the US, and Europe, we seek to facilitate the identification of strategic research partners and the sharing of resources, and information for scientists in our network.
Our ask: Help us better support you in identifying research collaborators and resources, by listing entities, organizations, and agencies in food and nutritional health research in your country or abroad, using this google form.
We pair experienced and established academics in the U.S., Canada and Europe to emerging scientists and researchers on the African continent. Whether it is joint research projects, young scientist mentorship, or virtual lectures, we empower scientists in Africa to address critical issues relevant to the continent through scientific research.
We support scientific research capacity-building in African institutions of higher education by U.S., Canadian, and European scientists for knowledge transfer and short- and long-term collaborations. If you or your institution are interested in joining a mission, please contact us.
Science knows no borders and is one of the most effective ways of bridging differences among nations. As such, we support international science missions that connect researchers across countries to strengthen the ties between their respective nations, independent of political differences and power dynamics.
We ensure that international partnerships initiated within our networks are balanced across all groups involved.
We provide network members tools to develop research, technical and professional skills, and grow their expertise, network, and research output.
We adopt a comprehensive approach to research capacity-building by tackling hurdles to international collaborations, professional development, funding, and publishing.
We create links between existing networks and those we created to maximize the establishment of research collaborations.
We work with our partners around the world with similar missions to help us tackle all aspects of capacity-building.
We seek support from the scientific community worldwide to help us advance our goals.
We provide early-career African researchers with the tools to design collaborative projects, identify research partners, and initiate and thrive in collaborations.
We help young African scientists identify research collaborators internationally, and facilitate and support partnerships.
We organize webinars to help young African researchers develop grant writing and scientific communication skills.
We partner with North American universities to broadcast lectures at our African partner institutions.
We pair young African researchers with mid-career North American peers to support professional and research development.
We leverage "virtual laboratories" to support international partnerships within our networks.

The Network Startup Resource Center works directly with the indigenous network engineers and operators who develop and maintain the Internet infrastructure in their respective countries and regions by providing technical information, engineering assistance, training, donations of networking books, equipment and other resources. The end goal in this work is to make it easier for local scientists, engineers and educators to collaborate via the Internet with their international colleagues by helping to connect communities of interest.
AfricArXiv is a free, open source and community-led digital archive for African research which provides a non-profit platform for African scientists to upload their working papers, preprints, accepted manuscripts (post-prints), and published papers. AfricArXiv also provides options to link data and code, and for article versioning. AfricArxiv is dedicated to speeding and opening up research and collaboration among African scientists and helping to build the future of scholarly communication.
The Training Centre in Communication is the first African-based training center to teach effective communication skills to scientists. TCC Africa is an award-winning Trust, established as a non-profit entity in 2006 and is registered in Kenya. TCC Africa provides capacity support in improving researchers output and visibility through training in scholarly and science communication.
Khamsys is a Higher Education Center with excellent learning facilities and personnel to support learning engagements and research. The centre provides academic programs such as Executive Education, undergraduate and graduate programs in collaborations with World Class Universities such as the University of Arizona.
Khamsys is a regional centre of excellence for academic and research collaborations with Universities, Research Institutions, Civil Society Organization, Private Companies, Government and Startups. Khamsys is also a hub for professional learning and knowledge exchanges.
« La science n'a pas de patrie, parce que le savoir est le patrimoine de l'humanité, le flambeau qui éclaire le monde. »
“Science knows no country, because knowledge belongs to humanity, and is the torch which illuminates the world.”
