In a world where innovation is the driver of growth and where social, economic, and health challenges dovetail to constrain academic mobility, there is the need for out-of-the-box thinking necessary to keep scholars afloat. The 1st HOSTCLASS ACADEMY’s Virtual Workshop on Positioning Academics for Global Research Impact aims at exposing scholars/researchers to cutting edge knowledge on critical areas that would scale up their competitiveness in the global research enterprise. The workshop scheduled to hold from 14/11/2020 – 15/11/2020 will serve as an avenue to build the capacity of academics worldwide in the area of development programme analysis, grant seeking and proposal writing collaboration tools, among others. At the end of the workshop, a certificate of participation will be issued to all attendees.
