African Academy of Sciences — Grand Challenges Africa Innovation Grants, Round 1

With funding from the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, the African Academy of Sciences and NEPAD jointly announce seed grants to help Africa implement the Sustainable Development Goals, with focus on SDG3 and SDG9. Challenge 2 in the current call aims to ignite new ways of communicating the importance of investments in scientific research and development to motivate African governments and their citizens to support increased investments in scientific research.  Seed grants are US$100 thousand for two years. Innovations which receive seed grants and show promise for scaling up will be eligible to apply for additional funding up to US$1 million. Grants will go to investigators in African countries, but the program encourages partnerships with investigators in other countries. Applicants can be at any level of experience and discipline from colleges and universities, government laboratories, research institutions, non-governmental, and non-profit organizations.  The deadline for applications is 17 February 2017.  Link
