Our PhD students are rigorously selected through open calls. Universities, institutions and supervisors have been pre-selected to address the training gaps that are core to DELGEME mission. PhD theses will be tailored to do the same. All trainees will be based and enrolled in African institutions but can also interact with World class experts through various courses, short trainings and “sandwich programs”. Multiple supervision, mentorship and close monitoring of progress will ensure production of quality PhDs.
