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.
