The BioInnovate Africa Fellowship for Women Scientists (BA-FWS) was set in March 2018 as a strategy to increase women’s participation in bio-entrepreneurship and bio-innovation in eastern Africa. The Fellowship provides opportunities for early and mid-career women scientists to work with and learn from diverse BA bioeconomy projects and networks in the region.
The BA Fellows Alumnae Network (BA-FAN) is an initiative established in October 2020 to provide a platform for past and present BA Fellows to interact and maintain contact with each other and with BA.
- Strengthen the networks, which the Fellows established during the Fellowship.
- Create opportunities for women in bioscience research and innovation in eastern Africa.
- Support career progression, research initiation, sourcing of funds, collaboration, and innovativeness of women fellows.
