Canada-Africa Research Exchange Grants (CAREG) : Pilot Phase

This project was prompted by the perception that partnerships between Canadian research organizations and their counterparts in Africa - in contrast to partnerships between Canadian research organizations and their counterparts in Latin America and the Caribbean - have remained relatively limited and probably fall short of their potential. The Canada-Africa Research Exchange Grants (CAREG) were designed to rectify this situation by supporting a series of short-term research or training exchanges between Canadian and African universities and research institutes that address one or more of IDRC's thematic priorities. The project is expected to promote mutual familiarity between African and Canadian research systems, and to result in the consolidation of research partnerships between African and Canadian institutions.
