The overall goals of AAS are to strengthen science and technology capacity, to mobilise science and technology resources in the continent and among the African diaspora, to stimulate problem-solving research and development in the pivotal areas of the continent’s development, and to market the Academy’s activities widely for greater impact on African social development and economic growth. In particular it promotes collaboration among African scientists and between them and the world scientific community in order to facilitate regional integration and to serve the cause of global peace and security. It also improves Africa’s capacity for management of research, development and public policy by bridging the gaps among natural, applied and social scientists, the productive sector and the government.
