The Wellcome Trust United Kingdom

The Wellcome Trust is an independent charity funding research to improve human and animal health. Established in 1936 and with an endowment of around £13 billion, it is the UK's largest non-governmental source of funds for biomedical research.


European Commission, Framework Programme 7
(FP7) European Union

For guidelines on what is possible with the FP7, please visit the webpage of the European South Africa Science and Technology Advancement Programme (ESASTAP). South Africa and the European Union enjoy a privileged partnership marked by longstanding political, economic and development cooperation ties. The first intergovernmental agreement ever concluded between South Africa and the European Union, the Agreement on Science and Technology Cooperation signed in 1996, afforded South African researchers the opportunity to participate fully in the EU's Framework Programmes for Research and Technology Development. ESASTAP, a Specific Support Action, implemented by the South African Department of Science and Technology (DST) and funded by the European Commission (EC) under the Sixth Framework Programme (FP6), will significantly enhance the support and assistance available to both South African and European researchers to optimally leverage mutual benefits from this partnership. You will find information on searching for collaborating partners, mobility (SA to Europe and vice versa) funding, seed funding for building the early stages of collaborations, and how to access research funding.

European and Developing Countries Clinical Trials Partnership (EDCTP) European Union
The European & Developing Countries Clinical Trials Partnership (EDCTP) was created in 2003 as a European response to the global health crisis caused by the three main poverty-related diseases of HIV/AIDS, malaria and tuberculosis. These diseases account for over 6 million deaths each year, and the numbers are growing. Sub-Saharan Africa is the world's worst-affected region where besides ravaging lives, they impede development and cause poverty.

TWAS international

TWAS is an autonomous international organization, based in Trieste, Italy, that promotes scientific excellence for sustainable development in the South. Originally named "Third World Academy of Sciences", it was founded in 1983 by a distinguished group of scientists from the South under the leadership of the late Nobel laureate Abdus Salam of Pakistan. The Academy's strength resides in the quality and diversity of its membership - internationally renowned scientists elected by their peers.

SA-Germany Joint Science and Technology Research: Call for Thematic Cooperation Proposals (2013)

Closing date: 14 March 2014

Joint research proposals may be submitted in:         

  • Biotechnology for bio economy and health
  • Natural Resources (sustainable management and production)
  • Astronomy

In terms of human capital development, South African applications from previously disadvantaged researchers are encouraged, as is the involvement of historically disadvantaged higher education institutions. The projects will be supported for three years from 2014 to 2016. This call is open to working researchers residing in South Africa and affiliated with a recognised higher education or research institution such as a university, university of technology or science council. An application must designate two principal investigators, one in South Africa and one in Germany, who will bear the main responsibility for the project, including its technical and administrative coordination as well as scientific and financial reporting. The South African applicant must be in possession of at least a master’s degree (preferably a PhD). Commercial institutions and private education institutions are not eligible to apply under this programme.

Applications must be submitted through an online application process to the National Research Foundation (NRF) by accessing the link: https://nrfsubmission.nrf.ac.za/. No hard copies will be accepted and will automatically be disqualified by the NRF. Only applications endorsed by the research office or its equivalent at higher education or research institutions will be accepted.

The onus is on the applicant to find their own research partner. Proposals must be received in both South Africa and Germany. Proposals which have only been received in either South Africa or Germany, but not both, will not be considered for funding. The call process is highly competitive; therefore submission of an application does not guarantee funding. The availability of funds and the evaluation of applications from both countries should be positive for them to be considered for funding. The NRF will not be held responsible for non-submission, administration or evaluation of the application in the partner country.

Only applications endorsed by the research office or its equivalent at higher education or research institutions will be accepted. No hard copies will be accepted and or processed. Please ensure that an acknowledgment of receipt of the proposal has been sent by the NRF. Please note that the NRF will not be held responsible for applications that were not received. Researchers are also advised to ensure that their research partners’ applications are submitted and have also been received in Germany.

Background and Rationale: Microbial Pathogens and Carcinogenesis. More than 20% of cancers worldwide are known to be associated with microbial pathogens, including bacteria and viruses. Numerous epidemiological studies have reported an increased risk of precancerous lesions and cancers associated with pathogens. It is widely believed that perturbations in the composition of the human microbiota may increase the risk of, or cause, cancer.  This has led to the hypothesis that the microbial ecosystem and interactions between infectious pathogens and host cells play a critical role in modulating cancer-related pathways. Systemic factors, such as the microbiome, inflammatory status, and other microbial-related factors might also modulate progression of precancerous lesions to aggressive cancer.

NRF re Acknowledgement of the National Research Foundation in research outputs accruing from NRF support
Please use “National Research Foundation (NRF) of South Africa” in these acknowledgements.

The ISI Web of Knowledge and specifically the Web of Science provide us with the ability to comprehensively analyse research publications. This capability allows the NRF to benchmark the performance of the NRF and the South African Science system as a whole. The funding agency analysis assists the NRF to measure its own performance in relation to other agencies. It also gives an indication of what is being funded by the various agencies both nationally and internationally.

As with every information system the quality and completeness of information generated are directly related to the quality and completeness of the data that are entered. While analysing the 2010 publications which involved South African authors we discovered that 55% of the 9 325 records did not contain sponsor information. A further analysis of the 55% revealed several authors who received grants from the NRF did not acknowledge the NRF. It is for this reason that we request all NRF Grantholders as well as the entire research community to acknowledge the NRF (if you receive NRF support) as well as other sponsors.  This is critically important as the information allows the NRF to present an evidence-based case to government for additional resources for research.  We trust that you will honour this request.

Africa Portal
The Africa Portal (http://www.africaportal.org/) is an online knowledge resource offering researchers and opinion leaders a forum to share their insights on Africa and publish their work on pressing areas of concern to policymakers and the public. It aims to fill the gap in accessibility to research and information on policy issues on the continent.

A key feature of the Africa Portal is the online library collection, holding over 2,500 books, journals and digital documents relating to African policy issues. The entire online repository is open access and available for free full-text download. A portion of the digital documents housed in the library have been digitised for the first time as an undertaking of the Africa Portal project.

The project is a collaborative undertaking between The South African Institute of International Affairs (SAIIA), the Centre for International Governance Innovation in Canada, and Makerere University in Uganda.
