The Xpand-PALOP Initiative is held annually and gives the opportunity for researchers from Angola, Mozambique and Cape Verde to undertake a four-week summer internship in the UK under the guidance of a PARSUK member.

Xpand-PALOP aims to promote scientific development in these countries, particularly in the area of Health, and to increase the visibility of the knowledge and skills of PALOP students in the UK, as well as to strengthen collaboration between PALOP and British institutions.

This year, due to COVID-19, this initiative has been put on hold. PARSUK is instead currently working in partnership with the Calouste Gulbenkian Foundation to design a training programme to create a network of excellent partners that will help support the next generation of young African researchers.
