Request for applications

The SAMRC and DSI have teamed up with the Innovation Bridge to develop and offer an on-line portal for registering all research and innovation projects on COVID-19 in South Africa. The aim is to provide an enabling platform to identify all COVID-19-related research and innovation being conducted or planned in the country, to encourage collaboration, avoid duplication and identify research and development funding needs and gaps.
The purpose of this particular Request for Applications (RFA) is to provide opportunities for SAMRC researchers to enhance their research capacity through supervision of postgraduate scholars, with the overall goal of attracting young scientists of the highest calibre to complement SAMRC senior researchers and promote an increase in the number of scientists from designated groups in strategic and emerging fields where these groups are underrepresented.
