The next NEF Global Gathering will be held in Kigali, Rwanda on 26 – 28 March 2018 at Kigali Convention Centre under the patronage of H.E. Paul Kagame, President of the Republic of Rwanda.
The NEF is more than a conference; it’s a movement to advance African scientific discovery and innovation.
The NEF Global Gathering is a global science and technology forum on African soil where we talk collaboration, innovation, solutions.
NEF Global Gatherings (NEF GGs) are biennial gatherings. Far from an ordinary science forum, the NEF GGs position science at the centre of global development efforts.
In the presence of political and industry leaders, and with a strong focus on youth and women, the voices of global science leaders’ have the opportunity to be heard and to have major impact on Africa’s scientific future.
