During the general assembly, all member institutions will decide on a work programme. It will include funding opportunities for network activities. They could include:

  • Joint work on research questions
  • Joint development and implementation of research-based teaching and trainings
  • Joint development and implementation of trainings, workshops, seminars, conferences, alumni meetings
  • Joint work on publications
  • Joint supervision of students

This include the exchange visits of professors and short-term research visits of scientists at member institutions, Alumni activities and other network activities.

The funding of specific activities will be administered by the Africa-UniNet Office and will be implemented in the form of funding calls. Only member institutions of Africa-UniNet will be eligible to apply.
