• Bring together experts from both science and development fields, especially from across Africa, in an atmosphere where they can freely discuss and find common grounds regarding socio-economic development.
  • Stimulate collaborations and partnerships between scientists and development experts or practitioners.
  • Generate ideas and plans for interdisciplinary science-for-development projects, which could be incubated/piloted within the OAD or ROA networks, and potentially expanded globally

Expected Outcomes:

  • Collaborations between scientists and experts from different fields related to development.
  • Tangible ideas for interdisciplinary science-for-development projects that can be implemented via the ISC ROAD and OAD networks.
  • Fundraising plans to support project ideas
