ECOWAS Research Grant Programme 2020 (Win €1500)

The ECOWAS Centre for Renewable Energy and Energy Efficiency (ECREEE) and Konrad-Adenauer-Stiftung (KAS), offers the ECOWAS Research Grant Programme in 2020.

They are inviting research teams to submit proposals for policy research in any of the energy fields (e.g. energy technologies, energy finance, energy economics, energy policy, energy and the environment/climate change, energy and development, energy law etc.)

The Research Grant Program is part of the ECOWAS initiative on Youth Leadership Development in Energy, which works to prepare the region’s young men and women to become globally competitive energy leaders in the future. Aligned with the initiative’s objective, the Research Grant Program aims to build and strengthen the capacity of young West Africans to contribute and participate actively in the energy discourse at the national and regional levels and, thus, ensure that the youth has a say in the way energy development is shaped in West Africa. This aligns with the mission of the Konrad-Adenauer-Stiftung to improve the political and social framework for climate-friendly sustainable development, as well as stronger regional and international cooperation on energy security and climate adaptation/mitigation plans in the countries of Sub-Saharan Africa.

WORTH

  • Teams will receive a grant amount of not more than €1500 to contribute to the formulation of evidence-based energy policies or strategies in the region.
  • If the paper is accepted for publication, Research Advisors will be paid a sum of €500, separate from the research budget.
  • The research papers will be published electronically on the ECOWAS Sustainable Energy Journal and made available on the ECREEE e-library.
  • Furthermore, researchers will be given the opportunity to share their findings and recommendations at conferences and workshops organized by ECREEE.

ELIGIBILITY

Successful proposals will be selected based on:

  • Scientific quality of the proposed research
  • Policy relevance
  • Competency level of the research team

    for a long time. Thank you and good luck.

    effort to generate a really good article… but what

    this blog with my Facebook group. Chat soon!

    sure about the source?

  6. When I initially commented I clicked the “Notify me when new comments are added” checkbox and now each time a comment is
    added I get three emails with the same comment.
    Is there any way you can remove me from that service?
    Thanks a lot!

  7. My coder is trying to convince me to move to .net from PHP.

    I have always disliked the idea because of the expenses.
    But he’s tryiong none the less. I’ve been using Movable-type on a variety of websites for about a year
    and am nervous about switching to another platform. I have heard
    great things about blogengine.net. Is there a way
    I can transfer all my wordpress posts into it?
    Any kind of help would be greatly appreciated!
