This project seeks to assess the status of science in Africa in three critical areas: - an assessment of what research is produced in different African regions, - assess the level of interdisciplinary research with a focus on crafting holistic solutions for Africa's challenges, and- an assessment of science funding in Africa.

This initiative will explore the existing knowledge about women in science and examine societies perception of women in science. We aim to identify the best practices that will foster more women engagement in science in Africa.

This project aims to develop a mobile application that will assist scientists to communicate in sound-bites.This application will alert users and package messages as sound-bites with links to research summaries.Users will select the type of alerts they want to receive e.g type of disease and format of message.

Reaching more children and sparking their interest in science is key to developing science in Africa. This project aims to evaluate available and develop new cost effective ‘toys’ that introduce children to scientific topics.The aim is to use everyday and cost effective approaches that can be used and targeted at parent-child interaction.

Biomedical R&D is a key to African Development but a major barrier to success is access to research materials. Cost, delivery time, source, procurement methods and government restriction/allowances will be explored.

The ultimate goal is to maintain a sustainable mentor-mentee cycle for purpose of capacity building and networking.In addition, the project shall leverage on online resources/software to enhance transdisciplinary research collaboration within the network,as well as improve communication and performance between mentors and mentees.

This project aims to probe the values of our culture for effective leadership and cultivating an inclusive mindset by bringing together willing scientists and community elders.

ConnectUs connects African scholars and their institutions and is a platform for African Scholars and Research Institutions can work together to re-shape Research in Africa. Explore our members through our searchable map

There is a wealth of educational material on the world wide web, but this is largely inaccessible to the majority of learners in Africa, who do not have a high-speed internet connection. This project aims at looking for ways to increase awareness of these resources, and also of creating offline access through more accessible media.

Gender & Science in Africa is a project that aims at promoting and fostering Female African Leadership in Science by setting forth an ongoing research agenda that will tackle cross regional and trans-disciplinary issues related to the question of Gender and Science across Africa.

Appropriate technology implementation should foster community empowerment and sustainability by community participation. Successful implementation this requires community engagement through technology conceptualization, development, implementation, assessment and impact evaluation.

This Projects aims to Africanise Science leadership, develop a critical-mass of qualified science leaders in Africa and create a stronger and sustainable network for Africa scientific leaders reflected in the quality of science.

This initiative will stimulate training programmes that will focus on producing researchers with the capacity to conduct, publish and lead locally relevant and high-quality research that will have socio-economic impact in Africa. Our approach is to create models and make use of existing ones that will support the African-led development of world-class researchers and research leaders.

This project focuses on redressing the problems of African Scientists with regards to Science leadership and management skills. As such the SLAP working group will come up with a literature review on Science Leadership in Africa, development of a curriculum for African Science Leadership and motivate colleagues to work on mentorship.

The project aims to develop science leadership in Africa through science literacy and transdisciplinary communication by simplifying scientific concepts in a manner that can easily be understood and utilised by communities.

As scientists, this project will aim to empower the youth to acknowledge and rely on the skills and resources they have, be independent, responsible and take ownership of the available infrastructure so that they no longer resort to unsafe and unhealthy behavior to deal with their problems.
