The Austrian-African Research Network Africa-UniNet was initiated to create a long-term, stable basis for cooperation between Austrian and African universities and research institutions. It intends to promote new contacts, deepen scientific cooperation and provide excellent opportunities for innovative joint research projects.
The respective work programmes and financing possibilities are decided by the member institutions during the general assembly:
- Exchange visits of professors and short-term research visits of scientists at member institutions
- Further education measures (courses, workshops, seminars) for participating target groups
- Alumni activities
- Joint project applications (e. g. for EU funding)
- Other network activities
