Strengthening research capacity

MCDC in Guardian article on Africa's early career researchers

Africa's early career researchers need support and so do their universities article
30 November 2012

Read Jonathan Harle's Guardian article Africa's early career researchers need support and so do their universities. In it, Jonathan argues that "early career building is about institutions as much as individuals, all the more in African higher education". 

Jonathan references the Malaria Capacity Development Consortium as a trailblazer for providing structured career support to early career researchers.

Progression and support need to be actively managed, rather than left to chance, with personal and structured career planning becoming the norm - this is something that the Malaria Capacity Development Consortium has pioneered through its network. - Jonathan Harle, writing for The Guardian.
