The Africa India Mobility Fund (AIMF) is now accepting applications from African and Indian scientists who wish to conduct visits of up to three months in either direction.

The AIMF is a partnership between The African Academy of Sciences (The AAS) and the Wellcome Trust/DBT India Alliance (India Alliance) that has been running since April 2018 to promote collaboration between African and Indian scientists.  Travel grants which seek to establish links between African and Indian researchers that cultivate a culture of collaboration will serve as a vehicle to improve research capacity and build leadership in biomedical and clinical research for Africa and India.

The AIMF comes on the heels of the Third India-Africa Forum Summit held in 2015, where Heads of State adopted the Delhi Declaration renewing their commitment to work with each other, and outlining the priority areas and ways in which Africa and India can work together to improve the lives of their people.

The AIMF is also one of many efforts to exploit the synergistic relationship between Africa and India outlined in the India Africa Health Sciences Summit held in 2016.

Africa and India share many challenges, including in health, and the asset of a young population. The AIMF hopes that bringing together researchers from these geographies would lead to sustainable solutions for common problems.

The relationship between India and Africa is mutually beneficial. India has technological advances, including the production of generic drugs and is one of the world’s leading filers of patents, hence providing learning opportunities for African scientists. While Africa provides a conducive environment for research with its genetic diversity, fairly well-developed capacities for clinical trials and high disease burden. The AIMF also hopes to exploit this relationship and contribute to efforts to building highly-skilled science technology and innovative workforce and thereby advance knowledge economies and ensure more people live healthy, productive lives.

Funding will support collaboration in research in HIV/AIDS, tuberculosis, dengue, malaria, vector-borne diseases, parasitic infections, emerging infections, cancer, diabetes, hypertension, health systems research, antimicrobial resistance, microbiome, drug development, and general biomedical sciences.
