Cambridge-Africa is a University programme that supports African researchers and promotes mutually beneficial collaborations and equitable partnerships between Africa and Cambridge.
We aim to do this by prioritising Sub-Saharan Africa, and:
Catalysing new, and strengthening existing collaborations, between Cambridge and African researchers and their Institutions
Providing an enabling academic environment for African early career researchers
Supporting training activities for institutional research support teams
Encouraging, facilitating and informing networks of researchers dedicated to contributing to outstanding research in sub-Saharan Africa
The ethos of the programme and its partnerships are based on equity, transparency and trust. Activities should be driven by needs identified by African partners in order to address African (research) priorities.
