African Biomedical Engineering Mobility (ABEM) Scholarships 2021/2022 for postgraduate students and staff (Fully Funded)

Application Deadline: January 13th 2021

The African Biomedical Engineering Mobility (ABEM) project is funded by the Intra-Africa Academic Mobility Scheme of the Education, Audiovisual and Culture Executive Agency of the European Commission. The scheme is modelled on Europe’s well-established and successful Erasmus-Mundus programme. As part of the Roadmap 2014-2017 of the Joint Africa-EU Strategy, the Intra-Africa Mobility Scheme underlines the contribution of higher education towards economic and social development and the potential of academic mobility to improve the quality of higher education.

ABEM will build human and institutional capacity in Africa for needs-­based health technology research and development. The project will train postgraduate students with skills and specialisations not offered at their home institutions. Furthermore, it will support the development of biomedical engineering programmes that are being established, or have recently been established, at partner institutions and contribute toward harmonising biomedical engineering curricula across the continent.

This will be achieved through the provision of scholarships to cover the full cost of mobility between African higher education institutions.

Applications may be made in the following categories:

Master’s credit-seeking mobility (courses & short research visits):
Host universities: Addis Ababa University and Kenyatta University
Home universities: universities in any African country excluding Ethiopia

PhD credit-seeking mobility (courses & short research visits):
