The AphrikeResearch is a database and networking portal that provides a centralised platform for information that:

  • profiles and records African scientists, students and research managers in order to promote intra Africa collaboration and interventions for SDG realisation
  • makes easy identification of collaborators, mentors and funding opportunities
  • profile funders (specific fields/priorities/countries)

The portal also:

  • maps the role of each party in the network
  • mobilizes interaction between research managers, policy makers, researchers and research students
  • provides a resource for STI and R&D strategy planning – who is involved & in what research.
