EDCTP grant: CSRS and partners strengthen the capacity of French-speaking researchers

The Centre Suisse de Recherches Scientifiques en Côte d’Ivoie (CSRS) co-organized a workshop on the writing of projects funded by the European and Developing Countries Clinical Trial Partnership (EDCTP), from 16 to 18 July 2018 in Abidjan.

The aim of this workshop was to inform researchers about EDCTP's main funding mechanisms, its grant review process and eligibility criteria. It is the first of its kind to be organized in French-speaking Africa. It helped to build the capacity of about 50 researchers from a dozen French-speaking African countries in project writing to reduce the gap between Francophone and Anglophone Africans in the mobilization of projects financed by the EDCTP.  


During these three days of training, the participants became familiar with the different types of funding provided by the EDCTP, the questions of ethics and excellence in research. In addition, group work sessions enabled them to identify relevant project ideas that they promised to finalize and submit.
