One of Our Core Objective is capacity building of our Member Science Academies
Network of African Science Academies(NASAC) assists in building the capacities of academies in Africa to improve their roles as independent expert advisors to governments and to strengthen their national, regional and international functions.
NASAC-IAP CAPACITY BUILDING GRANT SCHEME
The Capacity Building Grants Scheme is aimed at empowering Science Academies and their members through provision of grants of up to a maximum of US$10,000 per academy. This scheme supports the setting up of secretariat facilities for academies that have been in existence for less than five (5) years while strengthening the operations of older academies. The purpose of these grants is to improve the functionality of NASAC-members and support intra-networking through provision of science-policy advice. Additionally, in the implementation of these grants, the inclusion and participation of national young academies, women and early-career researchers is highly encouraged
