Workshop on “Energising successful studentship schemes”


This workshop was organised by AFCP to bring together all components of a successful studentship activity.  The aim of the presentations was:

  • to improve the understanding of opportunities for studentships
  • to increase awareness of the funding, operation and supervision of studentships
  • to provide a basis/platform for a collaborative activity to be operational for studentships beginning in 2012.
