First SGCI Private Public Partnerships Call for Proposals (CfP) has been released in Malawihttps://sgciafrica.org/en-za/news/Pages/First-SGCI-Private-Public-Partnerships.aspxFirst SGCI Private Public Partnerships Call for Proposals (CfP) has been released in Malawi2018-04-19 03:42:45 AM<p>​In order to promote the co-creation and exchange of knowledge and associated products between the public and private sector, the SGCI and the SGCs in SSA have instituted a Public and Private Partnership Research and Innovation Grant. The grant, in Malawi, has been established with co-funding between the SGCI and NCST with the aim of supporting research projects in Renewable Energy as one of the identified national priority areas of research.  The SGCI and NCST will, therefore, co-fund demand-led, collaborative research projects that address issues of relevance to the private sector focusing on Renewable Energy. The National Commission for Science and Technology (NCST) is, therefore, calling for research proposals focusing on renewable energy to be considered for funding.<br></p>GP0|#b419a699-d4cb-4d83-8ed5-2fbf3a3662ba;L0|#0b419a699-d4cb-4d83-8ed5-2fbf3a3662ba|Partnerships and private sector engagement;GTSet|#a732f390-1055-4aea-9895-b94267dc0dab;GPP|#5cd65b2a-7cee-4bce-887f-7b43bf03d2d4
