An opportunity is available for a Research Council funded student to travel to Cape Town in the week of 5 November 2012 to participate in a “Young Scientist Workshop”. This aims to bring together young South African and European scientists to prepare recommendations on how South Africa-EU research and innovation partnerships can be enhanced. Attendees will need to give a 10 minute presentation on their experience or future plans for engagement with South Africa. Travel and accommodation expenses will be paid by the EU. Anyone interested should contact Tim.Moody@fco.gov.uk for further information and directly outline their PhD project and experience of engagement with Africa.
