Workshop in Cambridge

iCCB organized a workshop in Cambridge, UK, 1st May – 6th May 2018. This was a small workshop intended for intense on-hands planning and research. The result from this workshop was a letter of intent (LOI) to apply to a joint NSF-NERC (US-UK) funding program for a research initiative in Africa. 

We were invited to submit a full proposal to this international program (notification February 7, 2019) and we plan to submit a full proposal by the close of 2019. Strategically applying for grant funding from non-IUBS countries allows us to broaden the scope of the IUBS initiative. In addition to research, we developed a preliminary plan for a training program in East Africa. The workshop was attedned by 5 participants.
