NASAC in collaboration with and support from the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO) and the Royal Netherlands Academy of Arts and Sciences (KNAW) jointly held a Consultative Forum on Open Access (OA): Towards high level interventions for research and development in Africa.
NASAC has been committed to enhancing capacity of existing science academies and encouraging the creation of new academies in countries where none exist in Africa. NASAC is hence proud to announce the creation of 2 additional national academies increasing the NASAC membership to 21.
The NASAC science-policy document entitled: The Grand Challenge of Water in Africa – Recommendations to Policymakers was launched on 15 October, 2014 in a grand event at the Second Ministerial Forum on Science, Technology and Innovation (STI) in Africa Hosted by the Government of Morocco, and organized by the African Development Bank (AfDB).
The Global Young Academy (GYA) is pleased to announce the establishment of the Africa Science Leadership Program (ASLP). The program will be run by the University of Pretoria in partnership with the GYA and is funded by the Robert Bosch Foundation.
