AfriChild with support from Oak Foundation has organized a scientific writing workshop under the auspices of the Inter-university collaboration program. The training targets the first cohort of inter-university research trainees (2017-2019).
The training will be held in two-phases. The first session will run from 30th March – 3rd April 2020 and the second & final session will run from 27th – 30th April 2020.
The goal of the training is to enhance the skills of researchers to produce high quality publications, and promote effective dissemination of child-focused research outputs. Specifically, the training intends to create an opportunity for researchers to translate their research reports (seed grants-supported studies) into publishable products mainly scientific articles to be published in the identified peer-reviewed journals.
Under the Inter-university collaboration program, AfriChild works with seven universities to enhance capacity of selected faculty members to conduct /teach rigorous child focused research as well as strengthening inter-university collaboration.
The beneficiaries of the inter-university collaboration are Makerere University, Kyambogo University, Muni University, Uganda Christian University, Uganda Martyrs University, Gulu University and Nsamizi Training Institute.
