AvH Project: Academic mobility: strategy for research capacity building and integration of junior scientists in the University of Yaoundé 1 and TU-Chemnitz in linguistics
This linkage group programme is a platform for academic cooperation and exchange through mobility of scientists in the University of Yaoundé 1 and TU-Chemnitz, for research capacity building and integration of junior scientists in linguistics. The activities envisaged include the organization of 02 specialist workshops and 02 research colloquia. 10 participants are involved. An advocacy and service role is integrated into the proposed activities moving into the future in which senior scientists will continue to provide information on publication opportunities and conferences and will help mediate academic texts of junior scientists, in view of optimizing their chances for quality publications and eventually successful applications for the Humboldt scholarship scheme.
In the immediate, the linkage project should enhance the capacity of junior scientists involved, so that they can produce stronger publications, prepare and present successful applications for the Humboldt scholarship scheme. In the long run, the integration of these junior scientists will impact teaching, research and training of students in Cameroon. Furthermore, such exposure of junior scientists from Cameroon to the German research community, through exchange visits and eventual postdoctoral fellowships, will create a critical mass of teachers and researchers for the former moving into the future.
