EDCTP 2020 Career Development Fellowships in poverty-related diseases and child and adolescent health

The purpose of this Call for Proposals is to support early- to mid-career researchers (“fellows”) by providing them with opportunities to train and develop their clinical research skills.

The objectives are:
  1. to promote retention of postdoctoral researchers and postgraduate medical researchers in the clinical or field research areas of sub-Saharan Africa
  2. to equip the fellows to establish themselves as independent researchers with ability to establish their own research teams at host institutions in sub-Saharan Africa.
Proposals should enhance the ability of the fellow to design, plan and execute clinical biomedical and/or social science/ethics research projects within the scope of the EDCTP2 programme.

Due to the extraordinary global crisis of COVID-19 that is also affecting African countries, this topic should also be considered by applicants.

Expected impact

Projects funded under this Call for Proposals should:
  • contribute towards the achievement of SDG3 ‘Ensure healthy lives and promote well-being for all at all ages’
  • promote career progression of researchers in Africa
  • encourage entry and reintegration of African scientists trained abroad and
  • enable the retention of postdoctoral and postgraduate researchers in their respective research fields and that the researchers develop into independent researchers and team leaders at host institutions in sub-Saharan Africa.
