A new network has been established to facilitate discussion between PhD students in EU and Africa. The online network uses the LinkedIn platform and is a unique tool for members to share their experiences and any relevant information. Through this group researchers can engage with each other and even develop research partnerships. The members who most actively and meaningfully contribute to group discussions and initiate new discussions will be given priority in competition for bursaries to attend DocLinks Summer School 2013, which will be held in Finland (further information is available on the DocLinks webpage).

To join visit the network LinkedIn group.

The network is supported by DocLinks project, which is carried out with the financial assistance of the EACEA Erasmus Mundus programme and coordinated by the Association of Commonwealth Universities.
