Africa Week is the University of Pretoria’s biennial science leadership event.

In May 2023, and in strategic partnership with South Africa’s Department of Science and Innovation and National Research Foundation, they are convening the leadership of prominent African and global scientific networks and international, transdisciplinary initiatives, and will host a series of topical dialogues on the theme ‘Open Africa, Open Science’.

The programme will interrogate the idea of science as a global public good through the lenses of the global open science movement and its importance for the continent.

The event delegates shall interpret openness in its broadest sense and seek to move conversations towards concrete actions aimed at increasing the impact and influence of African research through effective and equitable global partnerships.

Alongside leaders of Higher Education Institutions from Africa and across the world, Africa Week 2023 will convene key stakeholders from government; the private sector; civil society; the investment community; and the media. Also there are strategic side events comprising of partnership meetings; workshops aimed at planning or progressing new international programmes of transdisciplinary work; and the launch of some exciting new collaborative initiatives. 

The Transformative Innovation Africa Hub is one of key collaboration at the interface of research-policy-investment. The sessions occur on Wednesday 24 May. Register your virtual attendance.
