Mutual Capacity Strengthening

Key to PARC’s mission is the promotion of mutual capacity strengthening  to embed a different mode of global North-Africa research partnerships, especially with scholars and academic leaders of the future. PARC aims to:

  • foster the University’s active involvement in Africa-led research capacity strengthening initiatives
  • curate bespoke bilateral exchange and knowledge sharing schemes

PARC is working with the Partnership for Skills in Applied Sciences, Engineering and Technology Regional Scholarship and Innovation Fund (PASET-RSIF) initiative. Plans for partnership are centred on the hosting of ‘sandwich’ PhD guest students, specifically in the areas of climate change, Big Data and agribusiness and on engaging these cohorts together with UoB peers on the challenge of transforming global North-Africa research relations.
