The Austrian-African Research Network Africa-UniNet was initiated to create a long-term, stable basis for cooperation between Austrian and African universities and research institutions. The network promotes the establishment of new scientific contacts and the deepening of existing collaborations. Moreover, it offers opportunities to fund international projects.

Planned network activities include among others exchange visits of professors and short-term research visits of scientists; further education measures for participating target groups; conferences, and joint project applications.

Current Call
