  • ACU Spotlight No 5 - Investing in the next generation of researchers Reports
  • Part of the ACU Spotlight series of briefing papers on international HE matters. As universities seek to strengthen their role in knowledge production and innovation, a transition needs to be made from focusing on student numbers to creating an enabling environment for the early career academics who will shape the future direction of higher education. A new report from the ACU in partnership with the British Academy explores what good practice in support for early career researchers looks like, and makes a number of recommendations for where institutional investment may best be targeted.

  • Foundations for the future: supporting the early careers of African researchers Reports
  • This paper is a follow-up to The Nairobi Report, published by the British Academy and the Association of Commonwealth Universities in 2009. It offers an analysis of the challenges facing early career researchers in African universities, drawing on the discussions which led to the earlier Nairobi study, subsequent consultations, and on parallel work by other organisations. It identifies the key areas in which further support needs to be provided, and suggests ways in which new collaborative mechanisms might be designed in order to do this. The focus of this and the earlier Nairobi Report is on relationships between Africa and the UK, but much of what we discuss is undoubtedly relevant to research links within the African continent, as well as between Africa and other regions.
