Thirty-seven participants from universities across Africa and Europe worked on a total of 21 proposals for submission to the current Edulink call (www.acp-edulink.eu) in July.
The workshops were facilitated by Ir. Gerard den Ouden, from the ACP-ST Management Unit in Brussels, supported by Dr Paul Nampala from RUFORUM.
They led participants through the detailed guidelines and requirements of the call, explaining the process of how the proposals are evaluated by Edulink, and how to prepare a winning proposal. In the workshop, participants worked long hours to refine logical frameworks, activity plans and budgets, reviewing each other’s plans in a process of peer review.
The resulting proposals should therefore have a head start in the competitive selection process, and be more ably managed when funded.
