MDBI recognizes the recent improvement in the overall research output of African-based researchers. This improvement is a consequence of many initiatives that are actively implemented in Africa. We know that there is still a long way to go because Africa still has the least contribution to global research output. We have been through the difficulties associated with doing research in Africa and we have clear ideas on how to tackle these challenges in the short, medium and long terms.
As part of our efforts to contribute to high-quality research output in Africa, we are activating the initial phase of our virtual collaboration platform. The virtual collaboration strategy is designed to bridge the gap between researchers and research facilities that are heterogeneously distributed on the continent.
In the nearest future virtual collaboration will ensure that the network between researchers and research facilities will be fully autonomous. We want to bring intra-collaboration to the fingertips of everyone.
Our objective at this stage is to match researchers with laboratories where needed facilities are available within the shortest time possible. Please see the list of research techniques within our reach.
