In brief

About the Project

The African Science Leadership Program is aimed at early-career scientists in Africa who want to take on a leadership role in terms of shaping science and research, both at their own universities and across institutions and national borders. Alongside seminars on the development of management, communication, and leadership skills, the twelve-month program covers the implementation of individual projects designed to bring about improvement in scientific management. Therefore, the Robert Bosch Stiftung supports programs that enable young African scientists to gain qualifications in science management and leadership, cultivate the key expertise required for an academic career, and build strong pan-African and international networks. The program is organized by the University of Pretoria in conjunction with the Global Young Academy, the Robert Bosch Stiftung and various international partners, and is integrated in the Future Africa Initiative.
