Funding information sessions

The BDIL unit has arranged a number of Funding Information Session since February 2014.

The Purpose is to ensure that critical areas of the funding submission and proposal development process are dealt with through dedicated sessions to researchers.  These sessions take place on a monthly basis and are presented by either internal staff members or external partners.

The last and most recent session was presented by Dr Aldo Stroebel from the National Research Foundation (NRF) on the 21 May.

He addressed staff on NRF opportunities and touched on the following areas:
•    Funding opportunities for capacity development,
•    Strategic aspects of African (and overseas)  engagements,
•    Instruments for international collaboration and support and 
•    Components of networking and partnership development for open reflection and input.
