The Cambridge-Africa ALBORADA Research Fund was established in 2012, with generous support from The ALBORADA Trust.
The Fund supports pairs of researchers (post-doctoral level and above) from the University of Cambridge (or an affiliated institution such as the Wellcome Trust Sanger Institute, NIAB and British Antarctic Survey) and sub-Saharan African institutions, across all disciplines, to initiate and/or strengthen research collaborations.
To date, more than 240 awards have been made, to enable Cambridge researchers to engage with African colleagues from 31 African countries.
Some awardees have been able to use the preliminary results from their seed fund / research collaboration to apply for and win significant funding (e.g. Royal Society/Leverhulme Awards, Global Challenges Research Fund, etc.).
Opt-out at any time. No strings attached.
