During the ANIE Conference, ANIE held a workshop on its ongoing Writing International Students Migration in Africa (WISMA) project. The project aims at building capacity towards sustainable development of an enriching research environment in Africa. It thus mentors and trains young researchers in Africa for publishing in top ranking journals by enhancing their writing skills and abilities.

During the workshop, the participating early career researchers shared their experiences in the project. This included some of the achievements they had made and the challenges facing them. It was noted that early career researchers in Africa experience more challenges compared to their counterparts in other world regions and thus needed much support.

Dr. Simon Ngalomba of University of Dar es Salaam shared the useful experiences and support he had attained through the project. Within the DigiGrad project, a stronger network of early career researchers is envisaged and is expected to be coordinated by ANIE. This provides an avenue for further collaborations with Open University, UK and other partners in strengthening capacities of early career researchers in Africa. ANIE has already engaged with the African Early Career Researchers in Education (AECRE) Network for further work in this area.
