About SRF

SRF addresses the absence of dedicated Sudanese platforms focusing on capacity building, knowledge sharing and research dissemination in a blended continuous education model.

SRF serves as a bridge to link Sudanese undergraduates & postgraduates with the expertise and competence of Sudanese researchers worldwide.

Equip young and budding Sudanese scientist to compete up to International standards by acquisition of core research competencies and academic soft skills.

Expand the initiative by utilizing the Internet and social networking platforms to collect, disseminate and emphasize the Sudanese researchers footprint and participation in all fields of scientific research.
