The African Biomedical Engineering Mobility (ABEM) project is funded by the Intra-Africa Academic Mobility Scheme of the Education, Audiovisual and Culture Executive Agency of the European Commission. The scheme is modelled on Europe’s well-established and successful Erasmus-Mundus programme. As part of the Roadmap 2014-2017 of the Joint Africa-EU Strategy, the Intra-Africa Mobility Scheme underlines the contribution of higher education towards economic and social development and the potential of academic mobility to improve the quality of higher education.
ABEM will train up to 22 MSc and 10 PhD graduates, and offer development opportunities to up to 9 staff members. Mobility must be to an institution in an eligible country other than the home country/country of the home institution.
Application deadline for 2018 intake is 13th August 2017
