First Africa Forum on STI for Youth Employment, Human Capital Development and Inclusive Growth

This forum on science, technology and innovation (STI) will be hosted by the Kenyan Government, through its Ministry of Higher Science and Technology.
Its key objectives are to:
• take stock of progress made by countries and share experiences of developing and implementing STI policies;
• present best practices in promoting STI for inclusive growth and social development in Africa;
• support African countries by facilitating the exchange of the latest knowledge and ideas on STI, bringing together key stakeholders and experts;
• create an Africa-focused global network of development innovators and problem-solvers;
• reinforce North-South and South-South collaborations in STI;
• strengthen public-private partnerships;
• foster regional cooperation on STI among higher education institutions to cater for an increasingly demand-driven education system.
