DAAD/ Forschungszentrum Jülich  “A bridge to Africa” Project Scholarship For African Journalist/Blogger 2018.

“A bridge to Africa” Project Scholarship

“A bridge to Africa” Project Scholarship

The German Research Centre / Forschungszentrum Jülich has won one of the main prizes in this year’s International Research Marketing ideas competition run by the German Research Foundation (DFG). The project on the pan-African challenge of soil as a resource will build a scientific bridge between Forschungszentrum Jülich and African partners. Against the background of the rapid population growth and climate change and its consequences, it aims to support Africa to implement methods to make food production sustainable and secure.

In order to make the project known in the African scientific community as well as in the public we offer a scholarship for an African journalist.

Core activities of the project will be a supercomputing training at a fall school and a so-called Hackathon in Accra for excellent young (and senior) geo-scientists. A Hackathon is a gathering of scientists to work on specific software applications. Here it will focus on data modeling for soil-related food security.

High-performance computing (HPC) technologies, applied to hydrological and atmospheric simulations within terrestrial systems, may contribute to tackle the challenge of food production for the African continent and also improve agricultural management under challenging conditions on a local scale. Therefore these two hands-on workshops offer African scientists an opportunity to get in contact with the latest methods of geoscientific research and to meet leading German science partners.

“A Bridge To Africa” Project Scholarship Benefits.

  • The scholarship includes an invitation to a one-month stay at Forschungszentrum Jülich, one of Europe’s biggest research centres in the fields of information, energy and bio economy in summer 2018.
  • The scholarship also covers the costs for a one-week trip to Accra, Ghana, where the core activities of the project take place from 26th November 2018 to 30th November 2018.
  • For one week in autumn 2018 young scientists from Ghana and other African regions will meet Geo-scientists from Forschungszentrum Jülich in Accra, to get in contact with the latest methods of modern geoscientific research – modeling and simulation with supercomputers. The vision: Soil Research can support a secure and sustainable food production for Africa – and a week together could be the first step for future cooperation of geo-scientists from both sides of the bridge.

“A Bridge To Africa” Project Scholarship Requirements.

  • If you are an African journalist (print, TV, radio or Social Media, for instance Blogs) who is devoted to the possibilities of modern science to tackle great societal challenges it would be a pleasure for us to receive your application.
  • During your four-week stay in Jülich, you will work with the press office and support the communication’s team to initiate first project activities already.
  • You will also get close insight into our geoscientific research, meet scientists who organize the Pan African Soil Challenge project and get in contact with colleagues of international relations.
