Gaillard, Jacques; Zink, Eren; Furo Tullberg, Anna

Abstract:
This study comprises an overview of science and technology activities in Tanzania; a retrospective analysis of International Foundation for Science (IFS) applications, applicants and grantees; a questionnaire survey of IFS grantees in Tanzania ( 31 responded); a bibliometric study of their scientific production; and 17 interviews with Tanzanian grantees.  The study covers the period from 1974-2000, and includes the 55 grantees in the IFS programme during that time.  They were working in 18 research institutions throughout the country, but more than half were found in the top two recipient institutions in Tanzania: the Sokoine University of Agriculture and the University of Dar es Salaam.
