Pan-African Scientific Research Council: Call for Expression of Interest

The COVID-19 pandemic has revealed the stark need for African institutions of higher education that can efficiently generate and transmit knowledge in times of crisis. Now more than ever, scientists and social scientists must come together to generate policy-relevant research. To fill this vital need, African researchers are forming a Pan-African Scientific Research Council on the premise that “Research is not a luxury, but rather a survival strategy.”

The Council was initiated by Leonard Wantchekon, Professor of Politics at Princeton University and the Founder and President of the African School of Economics (ASE), as part of his contribution to the ongoing global campaign to generate a robust and enduring international response to the Pandemic.
