Launching world class researchers

A Space to Make Your
Greatest Impact

We are launching world class researchers through our intensive programs to help tackle some of Africa’s biggest challenges. This is a ResearchRound Program. 

About LUNE

ResearchRound LUNE is a program for developing African researchers to gain a better understanding of the intellectual process of inquiry, analysis and synthesis while having the opportunity to experience personal and professional growth.

Building Africa's development and innovation foundation.

There is no Innovation without Research

Through the LUNE Program, ResearchRound is seeking to support Africa’s development through research. Innovation is built on knowledge. Research builds knowledge. We are working with world class researchers and coaches to build the capacity of emerging researchers who can in turn collaborate with corporate and academic Africa to build the basis of innovation and development across the continent.
