Call for proposals to support Africa’s Science Granting Councils in developing policy frameworks and enabling structures for public-private sector partnerships
Promoting linkages and knowledge exchange between public sector research organizations and private sector actors has been a key objective of SGCI’s work since its inception. Important aspects are private sector partnerships through research projects, ensuring the priorities of research organizations are aligned with private sector needs and enhancing private sector understanding of how to work with public research organizations.
Building on and deepening earlier SGCI work, this project will support the councils to implement and pilot the necessary policy frameworks to promote public-private sector partnerships and it will involve sharing experiences among councils.
The Science Granting Councils Initiative in sub-Saharan Africa (SGCI) invites project proposals from organizations (including think tanks, institutes, universities and agencies) with proven experience and track records to support the councils in developing policy frameworks and enabling structures for private sector partnerships.
