Our Approach

Maintaining a Pipeline of High-Quality Early Career Researchers (ECRs)

CARTA will maintain a pipeline of ECRs by offering: doctoral and postdoctoral fellowships; Joint Advanced Seminars (JASes) to equip doctoral fellows with transferable research skills; and training to nudge ECRs into research leadership.

Creation of Research Hubs in Partner Institutions

CARTA will create multidisciplinary, cross-institutional research hubs in partner universities. We will ensure research teams incorporate early career researchers; promote co-design of the research agenda so that researchers engage with end-users of the research; and support research hubs to develop large-scale competitive grant proposals, embedding PhD and postdoctoral training.

Mainstream CARTA Interventions at partner institutions

CARTA will support the creation of research supportive environments in African partner institutions. We enhance supervisors’ understanding of and commitment to the goals of doctoral supervision, exposing them to best practices in doctoral supervision and mentorship.
