There is no progress without discovery, and no discovery without science.
African scientific innovation will help lead economic and social transformation. The Next Einstein Forum (NEF) is focused on unlocking the potential of science to discover, invent and predict new solutions that improve life and understand the world around us.
Unlike in the industrial era, where geopolitical power was determined by the ability to procure and secure goods, today we are living in the technology era. In this era, science is a key driver of geopolitical power.
Africa will integrate more fully in the global financial, economic and security systems when its scientific capabilities and infrastructure attain international standards. Today, African countries are all too often disadvantaged in international relations because its innovation potential has not been realized.
NEF is committed to engaging Africa fully in the global marketplace through scientific innovation.
