Addressing global challenges in academic writing: fostering scholarly pathways in Zambia, Uganda, and UK

Project status


This project aims to strengthen the research capacity and confidence of early career researchers (ECRs) in Zambia and Uganda. The project will provide a comprehensive support system, including mentorship, training, and networking opportunities, to enhance ECRs' research writing and communication skills. This will ultimately lead to increased publication output, improved grant funding success, and overall career development. Key activities include an 8-month online writing course, a mentorship scheme, an inter-institutional research seminar series, and a 3-day writing workshop. Targeting ECRs from Copperbelt University, Mountains of the Moon University, and the University of Zambia, the project is expected to boost ECRs' publication and grant success rates, fostering their research prowess and career advancement.
