NASAC, with funding support from the Inter Academy Panel (IAP) is running a project to publish a book on Inspiring Stories of African Women Scientists. The publication will feature stories that will speak to the African continent and which will profile African women stories. NASAC’s objective is to develop a publication in a story telling and non-science manner whose aim is to inspire younger girls to pursue careers in science and to help build the gender capacity within academies.
The German National Academy of Sciences Leopoldina and the Academy of Science of South Africa (ASSAf) supported by the German Federal Ministry of Education and Research (BMBF) and in collaboration with the Network of African Science Academies (NASAC) will be hosting a regional conference on Science-Business-Society Dialogue from 5 to 7 December 2016 in Pretoria, Gauteng, South Africa.
