Poverty alleviation and economic empowerment through scientific research & innovation: Better Knowledge From and For Africa
Africa is the world’s fastest growing continent with an exceptional opportunity for economic growth and prosperity, mainly due to our natural and human resources.
African researchers have produced proven evidence that Africa has the capacity to produce research that has a social impact, employing varied scientific disciplines. The Gender Summit Africa (GSA) is set to be one of the activities that we embark upon to stimulate meaningful conversations that will ensure that Africa’s research agenda is strengthened as we reflect on how our science, technology, infrastructure, capital and skills could be used to realize the continent’s full potential for the benefit of its entire people.
The GSA provides a forum for groups and organisations across all levels of scientific research, including research beneficiaries – to address issues of mutual concern. This forum will be equally significant as an opportunity for exchanging and analysing experiences of conducting research in various research settings.
We look forward to welcoming you to Cape Town, South Africa.
