AfWORO is participating in the project “Innovating from the South: the African Woman Scientists and the 2030 Agenda” funded by the La Caixa Bank and the European and Developing countries Clinical Trials Partnership. The project’s main aim is to increase the visibility and advance the careers of African women scientists and draw attention to their contributions to the socio-economic development and wellbeing of the Northern Hemisphere’s populations.

Within #Nurdelsur, eleven African women researchers are invited to participate as guest speakers in three conferences and five workshops that have taken place in Barcelona, Lleida and Zaragoza (Spain) and in Dakar (Senegal) between September 2020 and February 2021. Gefra Fulane, Josianne Tantchou, Farah Nabil, Oumy Ndiaye and Marème Sougou are among the AfWORO-supported researchers that have participated as guest speakers in this project.
