Developing Impact in Equitable and Transformative Partnership Working With Africa

PARC is working with a cross-disciplinary team to look at certain Africa-facing networks and projects at the University, reviewing collaboration modes and examining impacts, and gathering the resultant learning together into a toolkit that can help support University of Bristol staff in developing equitable and transformative collaborations with Africa-based partners in line with the Africa Charter.

We will synthesise learning from two GCRF-funded networks (CONNECTED and TESF) and other Africa-facing projects involving University of Bristol researchers. This will result in a community of researchers in Bristol and in Africa with interest and expertise in knowledge co-creation.

Ultimately, we will develop and test a toolkit and associated training materials which will be useful for University of Bristol researchers. It will offer practical guidance in an accessible form to support implementation of the principles of the Africa Charter, equipping researchers with tools for developing more equitable – and transformative – partnerships. At a later stage, the findings and outcomes may be useful inputs to similar activities that other Africa Charter signatories are undertaking.

This project is supported by a Strategic Impact Award, funded by the University of Bristol EPSRC-ESRC Impact Accelerator Account in 2023-2024.
