TCC Africa and Eider Africa have got into a formal partnership to support early career researchers through mentorship in their research lifecycle.
One of the major challenges self-sponsored early career researchers face is understanding their lifecycle from research proposal to publishing. Limited to lack of support in this process, contributes to the dropout rate in postgraduate studies. With this in mind both TCC Africa and Eider Africa will fill a gap by providing peer to peer support for early career researchers.
TCCAfrica will be offering training scientific communication and publishing courses, whileEiderAfrica will be provide mentorshipandsupport on the research lifecycle forboth members of the community. Early career researchers will need to sign up for the TCC Africacourses so as to get support for the mentorship.
So far, at least 900 researchers from Sub Sahara will receive peer mentorship through this partnership.
