The Perivoli Africa Research Centre invites applications for the PARC Partnerships Fund for African Researchers in the UK in 2021.
This new opportunity is open to applications from Africa-based researchers at African institutions to lead Africa-centred projects in collaboration with colleagues at the University of Bristol. Building on advances made in the UK research sector toward promoting greater equity in collaboration with global South partners, this funding aims to help embed a mode of partnerships that goes further in redressing the multiple layers of power imbalances often found in global North-Africa research.
As such, the fund’s goal is to contribute to the championing of transformation in African research and partnerships, within the University of Bristol and beyond.
Worth of Award
The budget for this call is £200,000 and it is anticipated that it will fund approximately 3-5 projects.
- The core team should consist of an African researcher based at an African HEI or research institution as lead and at least one Bristol researcher.
- The application must be made through an African host organization (e.g. a University, Research Institute) where the appropriate authority has agreed for the application to take place.
- Similarly, the Bristol researchers can be either experienced researchers (over seven years post-PhD) or early career researchers (e.g. postgraduate up to 7 years post-PhD). Where a Bristol early career researcher is participating, it is expected that the application will detail what additional support they will receive from Bristol colleagues, commensurate with their prior experience.
How to Apply
All applications for the PARC Partnerships Fund should be made online via the official website.
Deadline: The University’s last day before Christmas closure is Thursday, 23, December 2021 and it will open on Wednesday, January 5, 2022.
