Meet Stella from Kenya - a trailer about a student from an ISP-supported research group.
Watch the full length movie (now with subtitles in Swedish and English - click the 'cogwheel' at the bottom after starting the movie).
ISP aims at assisting developing countries to strengthen their domestic research capacity within the chemical, physical and the mathematical sciences. ISP focuses on least developed countries.
More information about the organisation, approach, etc can be found via "About ISP" in the top menu, and also in the ISP Strategy Plan 2013-2017.
The funding of ISP core activities comes mainly from the Swedish International Development Cooperation Agency (Sida) through its Unit for Research Cooperation and also from the Faculty of Science and Technology at Uppsala University and from the Faculty of Science at Stockholm University.
Besides the core activities, ISP is also involved in the coordination of bilateral programmes financed by the Swedish government. ISP is also coordinating activities based on Memorandum's of Understanding with other institutions and these activities are fully financed by the collaborating partners.
Mauritian President and IPICS reference group member, Professor Ameenah Gurib-Fakim, has written a article in the UK Guardian, urgently requesting African governments to increase their investment in research.
Pre-announcement: Sida will be announcing a call for proposals for 5-year partnerships between research institutions in Mozambique and Sweden for strengthening of institutional research capacity at universities in Mozambique.
