“The Elsevier Foundation grant will enable us to address the critical need for capacity building and information literacy to boost Africa’s participation in the global research community,” said Gracian Chimwaza, Executive Director, Information Training & Outreach Centre for Africa (ITOCA), “Making research available is one step—another vital step is ensuring that we help build researchers’ information literacy skills. This will ensure that this critical knowledge-sharing process is ultimately sustainable. Our project will empower the research community from this region to also contribute and share their innovations and research with the rest of the world.”
