Prof. Moses Obimbo Successful applicant of FLAIR grant


The Royal Society has run capacity strengthening programmes supporting science in Africa for more than 20 years. In the last few years, funding from the UK government’s Global Challenge Research Fund (GCRF) has allowed us work in partnership with the African Academy of Sciences to establish the FLAIR Fellowships programme for talented African early career researchers. We are very proud of the programme and the partnership. 


It is therefore with extreme disappointment that we have to inform you that the UK government has decided to cut its Official Development Assistance (ODA) budget in 2021 as a consequence of the difficult and uncertain economic situation resulting from the global COVID-19 pandemic.
