Opportunities for Partnership
Organizations in academia, government or industry are welcome to apply to become sponsoring partners or affiliated partners in AfricaArray.
The requirements for partnership are minimal: An institution must be interested in promoting the goals of AfricaArray and should have some link to the geosciences in Africa through training, research, exploration, production, or management of natural resources or the environment. Partner institutions also should be in a position to provide some level of support/benefit to AfricaArray.
Affiliated partners should be willing to sign the annexure to the Memorandum of Understanding provided on the link below. Sponsoring partners are encouraged to work with the co-Directors to negotiate a contract or grant agreement, or to provide a written statement of collaboration.
The application process is short and uncomplicated. Interested organizations should:
- Send a letter to the AfricaArray co-Directors (Profs. Andy Nyblade, firstname.lastname@example.org; Raymond Durrheim, Raymond.Durrheim@wits.ac.za) explaining the linkages between the institution and building capacity for Africa’s natural resource sector. The letter should also describe the role the institution can play in advancing the goals of AfricaArray.
- Fill out and return the form to appoint an institutional representative to AfricaArray.
