National Research Foundation: Seeking Proposals for 2018 Africa-UK Trilateral Program

Deadline: 20 July 2018

The National Research Foundation (NRF) and the British council have announced the Africa-UK Trilateral 2018. Proposals are invited from eligible applicants for the DST-NRF/British Council Africa-UK Trilateral Chair.

The SARChI Bilateral and Trilateral Research Chairs activity is supported by the Department of Science and Technology through the National Research Foundation (NRF) and is intended to support collaboration between Research and Academic Centres of Excellence in SA-UK and across Africa.

This Trilateral Chair call builds on the strengths and successes of the SARChI and SA-UK Bilateral Research Chairs Programme and seeks to extend the positive impacts and outcomes of this initiative to other leading and established researchers and research centers of excellence across Africa. The aim is to build long term research collaborations with established researchers in the 3 countries, whilst also providing opportunities for mentoring and mobility of Early-Career and Emerging Researchers who are mentored and supervised by the Research Chairs and/or Leading and Established Researchers. The core team, made up of Principals Investigators (PI’s) from each country, should be able to split their research time between the UK (20 %), South Africa (20 %) and country C (10% approx.), over the duration of the project.

With the rapid transformation of technology, the world finds itself in the 4th Industrialization era. The era is characterized by the intuitive use of technology and human beings to achieve sustainable economic development. The era requires the combination of elements such as the internet, robotics, machines, biotechnology, nanotechnology and artificial intelligence to bring about smart solutions for societal benefit. It is within this context and era, which has prompted society to rethink how production can be improved using technology.
