Dr. Vanessa McBride attended the Development in Africa through Radio Astronomy (DARA) annual network meeting and Steering Committee meeting in South Africa. She presented a workshop on how to design development projects. The DARA student cohort will be submitting proposals for development projects in AVN countries. The OAD will coordinate the proposals process which is funded by DARA.
Last year, DARA funded astro4dev projects in DARA countries following a similar call for proposals process.
