The Next Einstein Forum (NEF)
Next Einstein Forum (NEF) is an initiative of the African Institute for Mathematical Sciences (AIMS) in partnership with Robert Bosch Stiftung. Launched in 2013, the NEF is a platform that connects science, society and policy in Africa and the rest of the world – with the goal to leverage science for human development globally. The NEF believes that Africa’s contributions to the global scientific community are critical for global progress. At the center of NEF’s efforts are Africa’s young people, the driving force for Africa’s scientific renaissance.

Women In STEM Initiative
AIMS Women in STEM (AIMS WIS) was launched in 2015 during the first AIMSWIS Consultative meeting on the development of a Pan-African Agenda for Women in STEM. The consultative meeting brought together key actors from across Africa who were working on promoting African women in STEM to discuss the development of a Pan-African agenda for women in STEM and to agree on key priorities for moving forward collectively on this important issue.
