With this email, I would like to inform you that as part of the 5-year “Leading
Integrated Research for Agenda 2030 in Africa”
 (LIRA 2030 Africa) programme, the International Council for Science
(ICSU), in partnership with the Network of African Science Academies (NASAC)
<http://nasaconline.org/> and the International Social Science Council
(ISSC) <http://www.worldsocialscience.org/> will support up to 11
collaborative research projects across Africa (to the value of up to 90,000
Euro each over two years) that will that explore integrated approaches for
sustainable urban development in Africa.

We are inviting African early career scientists to submit collaborative
research proposals that apply a systems approach to analyzing urban
processes in Africa. These projects are expected to examine the inherent
complexity of cities, to explore the interconnections, trade-offs and
synergies between different dimensions of urban systems, e.g. governance,
human and social capital, environment, economic systems and infrastructure.

The call for pre-proposals aims to identify collaborative research projects
in Africa that bring together African early career scientists from
different scientific disciplines and key stakeholders (e.g. local
authorities, policy makers, built environment professionals, the private
sector, civil society and citizens) in research co-design and co-production.

Applicants should have no more than 10 years work experience following
their PhDs or equivalent research experience.

The deadline for pre-proposal submission is *14 May 2018 (18:00 CET)*.
Submission of pre-proposals and relevant documents may only be made using
the online application form <http://bit.ly/2GWhl6N>, following instructions
provided in the call for pre-proposals

More information about call can be found here http://bit.ly/2FeJA4g

We would very much appreciate if you could disseminate the call through
your relevant networks,
