There are travel grants available for exciting programmes in sustainable food production and food security as part of the Pan-African Soil Challenge (Pascal) that will take place from 26 – 30 November 2018 in Accra, Ghana!

PASCAL is a project funded by the German Ministry of Education and Research (BMBF) within the scope of the DFG Ideas Competition International Research Marketing. It aims to initiate a knowledge and technology transfer bridge (Science Bridge) between Germany and Africa in the areas of soil science, nutrition and hydrology. It has two main components: a training unit in terrestrial modelling followed by an interactive ‘hackathon’ in Africa. This will enable African researchers to partner with German experts on site to discuss models and further develop software. The PASCAL project will be given media coverage by an African journalist, other media partners and social media activities.

The application deadlines for the travel grants is 31 August 2018. More information can be found in the link and PDF document available to download below.
