What’s stopping young African scientists from achieving their potential
The Global State of Young Scientists Africa (GloSYS Africa) project was recently featured in an expose that appeared in The Conversation.
The article (available here) presents the project’s initial findings, which point to a lack of mentoring, resources and funding as key issues that young scientists face across the continent.
The GloSYS Africa project uses an online survey (currently open to respondents) and in-depth interviews to gather as much detail as possible to help address the issues that these researchers face.
More information is available at the project’s website here.
