Southern African Network for Biosciences; BioFISA preparation of phase two

Description

African Biosciences Initiative (ABI) has been established by NEPAD. Southern African Network for Biosciences (SANBio) is one of four ABI-networks. The Government of Finland and the Government of South Africa have jointly supported the establishment of SANBio through the BioFISA Programme. The first phase of the programme began in 2009 and will end in September 2012. A mid-term evaluation of BioFISA was carried out in 2011. The evaluation recommended a second phase for the programme on condition that certain changes are made to the remaining first phase. The Unit for Southern Africa proposes 190 000 euroa for preparing BioFISA Phase II.
