To achieve short, medium and long-term objectives and even to make certain plans, the Africa Research Group will require funding.

A number of relevant schemes here, including Newton Fund and Wellcome Trust, ODA, Internal Strategic Funding.

We have invited Research and Enterprise Division (RED) to help us deliver on our funding objectives.

The initial targets will be internally available funding pots, as the group establishes within the first 12 months.

We hope to have started applying for funding by launch (late November).

Funding for first 12 months: A range of internal options currently in discussion with LIAS and RED.
