PASCAL is a project funded by the German Ministry of Education and Research(BMBF) within the scope of the DFG Ideas Competition International Research Marketing. The prize-winning proposal was designed by Forschungszentrum Jülich and its competence centres HPSC TerrSys, ISMC, and Geoverbund ABC/J. It aims to initiate a knowledge and technology transfer bridge (Science Bridge) between Germany and Africa in the areas of soil science, nutrition and hydrology. It has two main components: a training unit in terrestrial modelling followed by an interactive ‘hackathon’ in Africa. This will enable African researchers to partner with German experts on site to discuss models and further develop software. The PASCAL project will be given media coverage by an African journalist, other media partners and social media activities.
