Network of African Science Academies (NASAC)

NASAC is the network of African science academies with the mission to make the voice of science in Africa heard. In particular, NASAC is dedicated to science-based policy advise, science education, challenges for women in research and science, young African scholars, and start-up support for new academies on the African continent.

NASAC is the network of 28 National Academies of Science in Africa with which the Leopoldina cooperated from 2011 to 2021 within the framework of various project funding from the German Federal Ministry of Education and Research (BMBF). Through the cooperation of German and African experts, five science-based NASAC statements for politics and society have been prepared on the topics of health, climate change, water management and biotechnology in agriculture.
