A collaborator needed: PhD student has mobility grant covering travel & subsistence and includes a research allowance to the host institute in any Sub-Saharan Africa country.
An Ethiopian, PhD student in Entomology at the University of Pretoria, South Africa focusing on host plant odours and sex pheromone lures responsible for the fall armyworm moth attraction want to apply for a short-term stay research grant to do some of my research activities. The grant called AGNES Intra-Africa Mobility grant, covers travel and subsistence, and includes a research allowance to the host institute in any Sub-Saharan Africa country.
The student, whose publications are below, needs a letter of invitation from the scientific host institute confirming that a place to work is available.
Are you able to assist as a collaborator?

The student is looking for an institution which has an electroantennogram (EAG) facility to test the moth antenna responses. If this is you please liaise with me please.
I am an Ivorian PhD student and my work is on the pest Helicoverpa armigera. I don’t know what tools the reception centre should have.
I can talk to my supervisors if we have any.
Otherwise, I suggest you contact IRLI or ICIPE in Kenya.
