Plans are in full gear towards the ASFI’s maiden multidisciplinary virtual conference tagged Research for Africa’s Transformation: Challenges, Quality and Impact. The conference will bring together leading academicians, scholars and researchers, young and old, across the length and breadth of the continent to share their knowledge and exchange ideas on the contribution of research to the development of Africa. Current research developments, improvement of quality of research across the continent, and reinforcement of research impact will be core focus of the conference.
As a multidisciplinary conference, all research fields are welcome. The overarching goal is that the conference will arrive at multidisciplinary and multi-sectoral initiatives that will spur tangible research-oriented, evidence-based solutions to the many challenges facing the African continent. The conference also offers opportunities for academicians and industry experts to meet and interact with local and international participants.
The virtual conference will be held together with the maiden ASFI Boot Camp. The ASFI Boot Camp is an informal occasion for African scientists to come together, discuss, and create opportunities for research capacity building and career development.
The boot camp is designed to develop and enhance the capacity of young scholars and researchers while collaborating with experienced researchers with deep understanding of modern research practices and how to apply them. Participants will be exposed to a range of research methods, software and resources. At the end of the boot camp, participants will be set to publish their originally-developed research ideas and will be better equipped for a problem-solving career.
