2018/2019 Achievements

Addis Ababa University has been implementing the AAU – SIDA bilateral research cooperation starting from 1 July 2018.  During 2018/19 academic year, a number of achievements have been made through using Automation of Research Management System and Academic Staff Mobility to various international countries. The 2017/18 annual subscription fee of AAU Research Management System Software – Converiswas paid by SIDA project. Thus, AAU transferred Euro 32,000 to Clarivate Analytics (formerly known as Thomson Reuters), the sole owner of Converis software. Consequently, AAU staffs have benefited from automated submission scheme and have submitted over 2000 research articles published in reputable scientific journals and over 150 research proposals in user-friendly Converisonly in one year.

SIDA also supported women AAU researchers and call for proposal is posted at AAU website and application is underway. The grant will be awarded late 2019.
