NEXT EINSTEIN FORUM 2020
The Next Einstein Forum (NEF) is a platform that connects science, society and policy in Africa and the rest of the world – with the goal to leverage science for human development globally. The NEF believes that Africa’s contributions to the global scientific community are critical for global progress and at the centre of NEF efforts are Africa’s young people, the driving force for Africa’s scientific renaissance.
The NEF Global Gathering are Africa’s premier science and innovation gatherings. A place where science meets business for a prosperous Africa. The gathering centers science and innovation at the heart of global development by discussing the new economies and value chains that will drive the 4th Industrial Revolution and the research that is needed to move from slogans to action.
The NEF Global Gatherings are unique and the program truly cross-cutting and multidisciplinary. Over 50% of participants are under 42 years of age and at least 40% are women and discussions focus on going from lab to market, from research to impact for citizens.
The Global Gathering 2020 to be held on 10-13 March 2020 in Nairobi, Kenya, provides an important platform for constructive discussions on how Africa and the rest of the world will leverage innovative pathways for transformation.
