Topic: Could COVID-19 trigger the creation of funds to support research and technological development by each African country?

Why did we choose this topic for the 8th edition of our conference?

The COVID-19 pandemic has revealed the real face of  governments. The results of scientific research as well as those of technological innovation, available to each country, can be used to fight this pandemic. African countries which have not deemed it necessary to invest in the sector of technological development and scientific research are stuck. Indeed, the so- called industries in several African countries are quite simply trading service counters and not development engines.

Have we learnt the lesson? The attitudes of African governments and that of African industrialists will allow us to find a good answer to this question this year. However, African researchers themselves should also ask and answer good questions, not only on development issues, but on how to tackle and handle emergency situations in Africa
