Consortium for Advanced Research Training in Africa (CARTA)
The Consortium for Advanced Research Training in Africa (CARTA) has been our signature program in strengthening doctoral training in Africa. In partnership with 19 universities and research institutes, the program has supported over 160 junior faculty members and staff at African universities for their PhD training, developing their critical thinking and transferable research skills. It has also focused on strengthening university-wide systems
to support research excellence and productivity.
Going forward we will:
- Develop initiatives to support graduates of the program to become research leaders.
- Seek opportunities to institutionalize CARTA innovations in doctoral training at partner African universities, so as to reach all doctoral students at these institutions with these effective interventions available to doctoral students at these institutions.
- Explore opportunities to expand the CARTA model beyond public and population health.
