ICGEB will be holding its first Collaborative Research Proposal (CRP)  Awardees meeting in Cape Town, South Africa, from 5-7 November 2024.

This event is intended to bring together all of the African recipients of ongoing CRP awards, with a view to expanding collaboration and networking across the Continent and will involve both scientific and governmental institutions.

Current CRP holders in Africa include 37 Principal Investigators from across 16 African Nations (Algeria, Burkina Faso, Burundi, Cameroon, Djibouti, Egypt, Ethiopia, Gambia, Kenya, Mauritius, Mozambique, Namibia, Nigeria, South Africa, Tanzania and Togo).

CRP holders at South African Historically Disadvantaged Institutions (HDI), part of ICGEBs Special Programme with South African HDIs, in partnership with the South African Department of Science and Innovation, will include researchers from the University of the Western Cape, Walter Sisulu University, University of Fort Hare, Mangosuthu University of Technology, and the Universities of Venda and Limpopo.

This ICGEB event, the first initiative of its kind, will provide an environment and platform to greatly strengthen collaborative ties and knowledge exchange amongst the network of CRP recipients in different fields of expertise across the African Continent.
