The BecA-ILRI Hub annual Scientific Research Paper Writing workshop kicked off on 18 November 2013 at the Nelson Mandela African Institution of Science and Technology (NM-AIST) in Arusha.
During the official opening of the workshop, NM-AIST Deputy Vice Chancellor Academic Research and Innovation Professor Madundo Mtambo praised the partnership between the BecA-ILRI Hub and NM-AIST in strengthening the capacity of African scientists to drive Africa’s development.
The writing workshop which is designed to boost publication by African scientists in international peer-reviewed journals has 25 participants from 13 BecA countries (Burundi, Cameroon, DRC, Eritrea, Ethiopia, Kenya, Madagascar, Rwanda, Somalia, South Sudan, Sudan, Tanzania and Uganda). The participants will undergo a 5-day intensive, interactive hands-on training, during which they will develop manuscripts from their own project reports, and/data. The goal is to have these scientists submit their paper to a journal for publication within three to six months of completing the workshop.
The hosting of BecA-ILRI Hub’s writing workshop by NM-AIST is one example of the collaboration between the two institutions, who signed a formal letter of agreement for a Joint Capacity Development, Technology and Knowledge transfer Initiative on March, 14, 2013.
