East African Network of Learning of Administrators (EANLA)





Creating a network of learning

The administration of third party funds is often very complex and necessitates a high degree of knowledge to meet all of the requirements of the different funding institutions, which often includes a variety of regulations. Even more complicated is the handling of funds within a consortium where third party funds are often transferred from one coordinating institution to several research partners on all continents.

The idea of building an East African Network of Learning for Administrators (EANLA) was generated by the German University of Kassel and Egerton University in Kenya. Both universities look back on three years of intensive learning in the field of financial administration of third party funds/ international funds as well as mutual cultural understanding within an international consortium.

To facilitate the handling of international funds on both sides is the publication of a handbook which is specifically focused on the various administrative processes of the donating country and the country abroad while handling third party funds. Different steps for the management of a research project will be analysed and represented.
