LINK: Irish african Partnership for Research Capacity Building

The Irish African Partnership for Research Capacity Building (IAP for short) promotes institutional collaboration for development-related knowledge generation, knowledge exchange and mutual learning.

Since its inception in autumn 2007, the project has sought to broaden and enrich research collaboration between Ireland and Africa.
At the heart of the IAP’s creation was a recognition that research underlies effective policy responses to the urgent global challenges of our time, such as poverty reduction, food security and climate change.

IAP's niche is to help build institutional-level capacity for research in the service of development. For example, it assists the partner institutions in Africa to create and strengthen their research management and support functions. It also promotes a concerted contribution to international development among the universities on the island of Ireland.
