The Next Einstein Forum’s Africa Science Week (ASW), Africa’s annual weeklong celebrations of science and technology involving over 40,000 individuals – students, scientists and technologists – actively engaging in coordinated science events, has been concluded in 34 African countries. Across the continent throughout September, October and December 2018, ASW was held in Zambia, Sudan, Benin, Angola, Uganda, Eswatini, Guinea Bissau, Lesotho, Malawi, Zimbabwe, the Gambia, South Africa, Ghana, Tanzania, Burundi, Cote d’Ivoire, Rwanda, Sierra Leone, Tunisia, Nigeria, Togo, Mali, Cape Verde, Congo Brazzaville, Namibia, Somalia and Burkina Faso.
