INGSA-Africa Events and Activities
The INGSA-Africa Regional Chapter focuses on providing opportunities for individuals and organisations to improve their abilities give and receive science advice. Using knowledge to help inform government decision-making is complex, often contested, but ultimately critical for the development of better public policy.
Through workshops, networking opportunities, and novel research, INGSA-Africa is leading the continent’s discussion on science advice. To find out what opportunities are coming up, or to find resources and information from previous events, see below
