Welcome to GeoRes4Dev


Main Objectifs


The GeoRes4Dev project contributes to sustainable development of Central Africa (Burundi, DR Congo, Rwanda, Rep. Congo), to improve expertise, academic and technical research ("capacity building") relating to mineral georesources.

Information transfer
The knowledge transfer is ensured by granting scholarships for DEA, Master, and Ph.D. to local geologists to follow their courses in partner universities in Central Africa, with the scientific monitoring of the promoters from MRAC.

The GeoRes4Dev team announces a call for applications for a research scholarship (PhD position) in collaboration with Marien Ngouabi University 
The application deadline is Thursday, July 24, at 11:59 PM

Each fellow would cover a part of the Geores4dev project hypotheses, in a complementary manner, by dealing with a specific theme within one of the three different research areas:

  • Grotte

    Kongo area

    The cross-border region between the Pool and the Atlantic coast.

  • Gold-mine

    Lualaba area

    SW of the Ex-Katanga region.

  • Mission de terrain avec les boursiers

    Comicode area

    The Great Lakes cross-border region.
