Two CARTA graduates recognized for their excellence in science
Two CARTA graduates
Francis Fagbamigbe Adeniyi (Cohort 2)
Charles Drago Kato (Cohort 3)
are among 25 early career scientists named in the prestigious
African Academy of Sciences
(AAS) Affiliates Program.
The program recognizes exceptional young African scientists who are below 40 years, and is currently in its third cohort.
AAS, a pan African organisation headquartered in Kenya, described this round of selection as being “the most competitive pool yet with an overwhelming number of nominations from across the five regions of the continent.” AAS aims to drive sustainable development in Africa through science technology and innovation.
The 25 scientists will be supported to attend conferences, symposia and workshops and other activities that will improve their skills in proposal development, grant writing and pitching innovations, improve their publication records and ensure that their research impacts their communities from 2018 to 2022.
