Support NEF

Our supporters build critical support for African scientific innovation; helping to tell often untold stories of scientific advancement from across the continent.

The Next Einstein Forum (NEF) is a platform that brings together leading thinkers in science, policy, industry and civil society in Africa to leverage science to solve global challenges.

Financial support is critical to sustaining the work of the NEF. Funds and other support help promote a global campaign focused on promoting African scientific advancement and promote year-round dialogue about issues in science and technology in Africa.
