The EU provides financing for strengthening training and research in African institutions under the Intra-Africa Academic Mobility Scheme (1st November 2017 until 31st October 2023). In this mobility program, five African partner institutions and one technical partner from the EU started training professionals to manage fisheries and aquaculture resources sustainably, resulting in increased fish production, improved food and nutritional security, and ultimately improved livelihood and household income. In the various partner universities, the curriculum is now prepared to support training of Academic and Administrative Staff. Before September 29, 2022, COTRA has issued a call for applications from qualified academic and administrative staff for the jobs listed in Tables 1 and 2.
