The Institute for Photonics Sciences (ICFO) in Barcelona, Spain has announced that calls are open for the third edition of program established by the Women for Africa Foundation. 

The Women in Africa foundation, true to its mission of contributing to the development of Africa through its women, is launching the third edition of the SCIENCE BY WOMEN programme with the aim to promote African women’s leadership in scientific research and technology transfer and to foster the capacity of the research centres in their home countries. The main goal is to enable African women researchers and scientists to tackle the great challenges faced by Africa through research in health, agriculture and food security, water, energy and climate change, which can be transferred into products and technologies having impact on people´s lives.                                                 

The programme will fund 10 sabbatical fellowships for senior African women researchers to enjoy stays at 10 selected institutes located in Spain. One of those 10 fellowships will be hosted by ICFO.

Suitable backgrounds of the women African researchers include Physics, Mathematics, Chemistry and Engineering, among others. 

Details of the call and further information can be found at: . Deadline for applications is September 20, 2017

Comment on the letter of M. Belogolovskii “Young Ukrainian Physicists who fled the war took part in DPG spring meetings”

I have read this letter and think that the German Physical Society is doing a noble and right thing for the development of science, rendering concrete assistance to those Ukrainian colleagues who found themselves in a difficult situation because of the war in the Donbass.
