AfWORO, in collaboration with Nutrition without Borders, 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, over ten African women researchers are invited to participate as guest speakers in three conferences and five workshops that will take place in Barcelona, Lleida and Zaragoza (Spain) and in Dakar (Senegal) between September 2020 and February 2021. Gefra Fulane, Farisai Gamariel, and Josianne Tantchou are among the AfWORO-supported researchers that will take part in this project. Links to join the events online will be announced here soon.
