The Next Einstein Forum (NEF) Global Gathering 2018 is currently taking place in Kigali, Rwanda, gathering over 1,500 scientists, researchers, delegates and key decision makers from the African continent and around the globe. The conference also offers a unique platform that connects science, society and policy in Africa and the rest of the world – with the goal to leverage science for human development globally. The NEF believes that Africa’s contributions to the global scientific community are critical for global progress. At the centre of NEF efforts are Africa’s young people, the driving force for Africa’s scientific renaissance.
At the opening ceremony of the Forum, President Kagame challenged leaders on the continent to join efforts aimed at Pan-African collaboration to propel science and technology forward.
