Africa India Mobility Fund


The Africa India Mobility Fund (AIMF) is now accepting applications from African and Indian scientists who wish to conduct visits of up to three months in either direction.

The AIMF is a partnership between The African Academy of Sciences (The AAS) and the Wellcome Trust/​DBT India Alliance (India Alliance) that has been running since April 2018 to promote collaboration between African and Indian scientists. Travel grants which seek to establish links between African and Indian researchers that cultivate a culture of collaboration will serve as a vehicle to improve research capacity and build leadership in biomedical and clinical research for Africa and India. 

The AIMF comes on the heels of the Third India-Africa Forum Summit held in 2015, where Heads of State adopted the Delhi Declaration renewing their commitment to work with each other, and outlining the priority areas and ways in which Africa and India can work together to improve the lives of their people.
