Request for Proposals for CARTA Innovations in African Partner Institutions
The Consortium for Advanced Research Training in Africa (CARTA) is a south-south partnership with a south-north collaboration jointly led by the African Population and Health Research Center (APHRC) and the University of the Witwatersrand. The Consortium was established in 2008 with a mandate to build a vibrant African academy able to lead world-class multi-disciplinary research that impacts on population health in Africa. CARTA wishes to support its African universities to mainstream and institutionalize its innovations into university programs and/or processes with a strong emphasis on documentation of the institutionalization process, impact and lessons learned.
Institutionalization of CARTA innovations aims to build university capacity to become knowledge producers and train the next generation of African researchers by strengthening and sustaining high quality PhD training; and building research-supportive environments by implementing activities that support high-quality research and training ). CARTA is inviting proposals from CARTA consortium member universities to institutionalize any or a combination of CARTA’s innovations that are appropriate to the institution. The proposed innovations can be applied at University, School, Faculty, or department level. No more than two applications per University are permitted. Where appropriate and fundamental to the success of institutionalization, cross-institutional applications are also welcome. The grants will be awarded on a competitive basis.
