UCT researchers can access the latest global coverage of research funding programmes, as well as science and technology news and innovation policies through the institutional subscription to Research Professional Africa (RPA). This is an essential resource in the current national funding climate and we encourage all UCT researchers to take full advantage. The funding opportunities span the full spectrum of research disciplines and sponsors.


Training sessions may be arranged on request. See contact details below.
