African Research Fellowships Call 2023

Application deadline: March 31, 2023

The African Research Fellowship (ARF) program, jointly carried by ESA with the African Union Commission, was successfully initiated in 2021 with two African fellows selected to carry out their research in ESA in 2022. It aims at empowering African Researchers (Ph.D. or Master’s degree with extensive research experience) to carry out Earth Observation (EO) R&D activities relevant to the EO AFRICA Initiative. The African Research Fellows shall maximize the use of EO data in synergy with in-situ and state-of-the-art modeling approaches, in a cloud environment, to respond to the challenges the African continent is facing concerning water resources management and food security.

With this call, ESA offers 1-year fellowships to four African Researchers to work at the ESA-ESRIN premises in Frascati (Rome, Italy) in collaboration with ESA’s scientists.
