“The CNRS and Wits will fund common research projects in order to give PhD students the opportunity to conduct their research in both South Africa and France,” says Prof. Lynn Morris, Deputy Vice-Chancellor: Research and Innovation at Wits University.
After an independent evaluation of the 16 projects by the two institutions and then a joint selection committee, the CNRS and Wits have selected 5 projects. These 5 CNRS-Wits PhD projects are based in four entities at Wits University – the School of Physics; the School of Animal, Plant and Environmental Sciences; the Global Change Institute; and Wits Evolutionary Studies Institute.
“These projects pay testament to the diverse collaborations between Wits and the CNRS, and fall under three different CNRS Institutes – INEEnvironnement, INPhysics, and INSUniverse,” says Prof. Alain Schuhl, Chief Research Officer at the CNRS. “We are pleased that this project will go a long way towards enhancing multidisciplinary projects between the two institutions, and our respective countries.”
The CNRS and the University of Witwatersrand have a long-standing partnership and are leading numerous joint research projects in Physics, Astronomy, Astrophysics, Anthropology, Palaeosciences, Environment and Ecology. Some of these partnerships are already supported through International Research Networks and International Research Projects funded by the CNRS and the National Research Foundation (NRF).
