Dear all,

With this email, I would like to inform you that as part of the 5-year "Leading Integrated Research for Agenda 2030 in Africa"<https://www.icsu.org/what-we-do/funding-programmes/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<https://www.icsu.org/cms/2018/03/LIRA2030_call_for_pre-proposals_2018.pdf>.
