The African Academy of Sciences (AAS) invites you to participate virtually in a high-level scientific event taking place in Hammamet, Tunisia (and virtually) from 4-6 June 2024.

Through a series of scientific sessions, panel discussions, keynote addresses, and poster presentations, and research spotlight talks, the Scientific Conference will convene policy makers, thought leaders, scholars, and ARISE Fellows to showcase advances and discuss challenges and opportunities for enhancing investments and partnerships to facilitate research and innovation for development – themed around Catalysing Research and Innovation for Development

ARISE is an innovative Research and Innovation (R&I) support programme implemented by the AAS with support from the African Union Commission (AUC) and the European Commission (EC). The programme is mainly funded by the European Union, with some co-funding from the Carnegie Corporation of New York. Founded on the AU-EU High Level Policy Dialogue on Science, Technology, and Innovation, ARISE provides a vibrant platform and pathway for R&I exchanges within Africa and beyond, in contribution to sustainable and inclusive development, economic growth, and job creation. Launched in December 2020, the current €25.5 million pilot phase of ARISE – mainly funded by the European Union with additional support from the Carnegie Corporation of New York – supports nearly 600 early- to mid-career researchers across Africa, led by 47 principal investigators (ARISE Fellows), hosted in 38 African countries.

At the end of the conference, the hope is to have a vibrant community of scholars committed to brokering connections that enhance their career progression, while accelerating their contributing to the transformation of lives in Africa through science. Additionally, key messages from the event in Tunisia shall be presented at the 9th edition of the Science Summit being organised at the margins of the 79th UN General Assembly in September 2024. As the world convenes under the auspices of the Summit of the Future, hopefully insights from ARISE will contribute to solutions aimed at accelerating efforts made by the world to meet existing international commitments and take concrete steps to respond to emerging challenges and opportunities.
