CAS Recruited Over 1,000 Students From Africa in 5 Years
CAS reported that it has recruited 1,000+ students from Africa in the last 5 years, as well as sponsored 160 African scientists to China as visiting scholars. China’s leading science news provider ScienceNet recalled the 2014 Nairobi Industrial Court’s KEMRI (Kenya Medical Research Institute) case which set the milestone verdict of USD56K granted to each of the Kenyan doctors by their international project owners, based on the fact that these African doctors were not given equal promotion and career development opportunities as their European co-researchers in the same project. China is disrupting the research landscape in Africa by establishing an operational base – Sino-Africa Joint Research Center (SAJOREC) with Jomo Kenyatta University of Agriculture and Technology (JKUAT), which has conducted 48 joint research projects and over 250 joint publications. To date, China has conducted research projects covering biodiversity-related research, wildlife protection, prevention and treatment of desertification, climate change monitoring, and modern agriculture demonstration.
