About the African Network of Scientific and Technological Institutions

ANSTI is the acronym for the African Network of Scientific and Technological Institutions hosted by UNESCO’s Nairobi office in Kenya. ANSTI was founded in January 1980, through the financial support of UNEP, UNESCO and the Government of Germany.

Today, the network has 192 member institutions in 37 countries in sub-Saharan Africa. The network develops active collaboration among African scientific institutions so as to promote research and development in areas of relevance to the region. ANSTI emphasizes the pooling of resources available in the region so as to provide quality training and research in various scientific disciplines. ANSTI provides training, runs seminars, workshops and conferences, promotes research, publishes and disseminates information on issues relating to capacity building in science and technology.
