The word "beeline" defines the most direct route between two points, and that is what Research Beeline does with regard to research funding in Africa. On one end are the researchers and on the other, the endless opportunities and support coming from sponsors, government agencies, philanthropists, scholars, and many other sources from across the world; we simply connect the two ends and the effect is a vibrant and well-informed research community in the continent.
Research Beeline was founded out of the realization that Researchers in Africa share in so many ways similar challenges and opportunities. It is also common knowledge that most of the funding that is currently supporting research in our Universities and research institutes comes from sponsors who traverse the globe and thus for a researcher in the region to succeed, a deliberate and consistent flow of research funding information has to be guaranteed; thus, establishing Research Beeline came out of this necessity.
We do not just update on available opportunities but do go further to report on the entire funding landscape so that our researchers understand the story behind each opportunity before they go for it.
Once an institution subscribes, it will have empowered its researchers to seek funding, scholarships, and collaboration opportunities by themselves; individually or in groups, thus leaving the research office with more time and resources to offer support in other equally important areas. Some of our subscribers include; Makerere University, Uganda Management Institute, Pwani University, Technical University of Mombasa, Strathmore University, Kibabii University, Masinde Muliro University of Science and Technology, Jimma University, Mbarara University of Science and Technology, Kwame Nkrumah University of Science and Technology, Machakos University, Uganda Christian University, Meru University of Science and Technology, Zetech University, Murang'a University of Technology, UNICAF University, Kenyatta University, Arba Minch University, Mount Kenya University, and Busitema University.
