ACU co-hosts workshop on early research careers

Published on 16 February 2011

The need to develop new opportunities for junior scholars to establish their research careers was highlighted by the Nairobi Report, the result of a consulation process coordinated by the ACU and the British Academy in 2008.

As part of the follow-up to the report and its findings, the ACU, together with the British Academy and Higher Education South Africa (HESA), is hosting a workshop today at the University of the Witwatersrand, South Africa, to consider the specific issue of the early career programme and to engage in a deeper discussion around how this might be tackled within South Africa and the sub-region.
