The purpose of the SGAG is to: build capacity in the training and mentorship of young scientists on their career pathways; increase the involvement of local, regional and international scientists on site at ACCG; increase partnership opportunities with other world-class organisations; increase ACCG’s ability to undertake research outside of Uganda, and align ACCG’s research focus with our research priorities.
