The PEI #ScienceAfrica UnConference series is back and this year it’s bigger and better than ever! Over 150 delegates from business, academia and policy will come together for a day of exciting and interactive high-level panel discussions, focus groups and participant-led workshops.
The PEI passionately believes that for-profit businesses can and should play a key role in spurring scientific and technological progress on the continent – as the leading source of job-creation, for- profit companies can help equip the continents young and dynamic population with the skills they need to thrive, whilst also safeguarding the growth of their businesses.
Addressing a variety of trends, challenges and opportunities related to science, technology and education in Africa, we’ll be challenging attendees to find new innovative ways by which the private sector can contribute to and drive scientific and technological development, working with governments, academic communities and the broader civil society to support sustainable and inclusive growth across the continent.
Alongside PEI Trustees Rt Hon Lord Boateng and Sir Christopher Edwards, the new President of Mauritius, Dr Ameenah Gurib-Fakim GSK, CSK, will be giving the opening address. Panellists will include:
