The Africa Initiative (AI) is a faculty-led initiative that brings scholars together – from across Duke University and Duke University Health System – who have a shared interest, whether through their research or programmatic activities, in the countries and cultures of the African continent. Launched in the 2012, the goals of the Africa Initiative are to:
- Build connections between schools, programs, institutes and departments;
- Continue to foster new collaborations across disciplines;
- Transport existing knowledge gained, whether in Durham or on the African continent, to other Duke locations around the globe;
- Explore and pursue new funding opportunities and sponsored research
The Africa Initiative communicates through a listserv, which is the main mechanism for sharing funding opportunities, events and news. To sign up for the listserv, please click here.
